100 Minnesota Veterans are lost to suicide each year, that’s too many.

October 1-2, 2021 Caleb Wedger will attempt to run 100 miles to bring awareness for this issue and raise money that will help to improve the lives of our veterans.

Help us reach our goal of $10,000 by making a donation or becoming a sponsor.

Helping military & veteran families live healthier and more fulfilling lives.

For Vets, By Vets


We’re in this together

We know it can feel lonely, but you’re not alone. We’re here to help you ride out the storm.

We are here to help vets and their families reconnect with nature and other people. It is SO much more than fishing.

Fishing is a tool. A favorite tool. One that we’ve found works well over the years.

If you’re a vet who’s struggling or know of one, or a family member of a vet, please apply to attend one of our fishing excursions.

we’ve been there

We know firsthand the struggles. We also know the power of camaraderie.

Who We Serve

We serve veterans, children of veterans lost to suicide or military service, and their spouses.

Why We Serve

We serve because we personally understand the physical and mental effects of combat service and the need for a buddy.

How We Serve

We serve by way of providing a friend that not only empathizes with the affects of combat but also shares in a love of fishing.


It is estimated that we lose 100 Minnesota veterans to suicide each year.

That’s 100 too many and we’re here to do something about it.

Freedom Fishing Foundation is so much more than fishing. We use fishing as a tool to help veterans and their families. We know the positive impact of nature and camaraderie can have. We provide expense paid trips and fishing buddies who’ve been there.
