This event benefits Shadow Warriors Project, a 501(c)3 non-profit foundation dedicated to the support of private military security contractors, conducting paramilitary security operations in some of the world's most dangerous areas. These contractors do not receive the medical and financial benefits available to regular military and often find themselves without support to cover the costs of medical injuries that occur on the battlefield, and the resulting loss of income.
