In the Community

The Association contributes to various charitable organizations in the New York City area through our Community Grant program and through other charitable initiatives and events.

Intrepid Fallen Heroes Fund

Intrepid Team Extreme was born a vision shared by a group of ordinary people with a passion for making a difference in the lives of others. Members of the team are pushing their physical limits in a variety of extreme athletic events to raise money for the Intrepid Fallen Heroes Fund, which provides services for wounded heroes in uniform.
