Brad Keselowski's Checkered Flag Foundation announced the organization made a $20,000 donation to the National Military Family Foundation Saturday at Dover International Speedway.
"The mission of my foundation is to honor and assist those who have sacrificed for our country, specifically military service members and first responders," Keselowski said. "I give (my wife) Paige a lot of credit for insisting that we work with organizations that support not only our soldiers, but their families as well.
"She recognized what the NMFA does to help wounded soldiers and their families prepare for the challenges faced during recovery, and as a result, we are honored to support this Operation Purple Healing Adventure."
The donation will be used to support NMFA's Operation Purple Healing Adventure (OPHA) in Parkton, North Carolina, later this year.
Healing Adventures are three-day camp experiences for families of the wounded, ill or injured. The retreats are designed to strengthen and connect families coping with a new "normal," by providing them the opportunity to reconnect, build new memories, enjoy outdoor activities, and heal together.
