FORCE BLUE, the only non-profit organization in the world that retrains and redeploys former Special Operations veterans and military-trained combat divers to assist in marine conservation efforts, launched its latest mission, 100 Yards of Hope, February 2, 2020 at Super Bowl LIV in Miami.
By uniting the community of Special Operations veterans with the world of marine science and conservation, FORCE BLUE has created a transpartisan model of caring, cooperation and positive change with the power to restore lives and restore the planet.
FORCE BLUE is thrilled to announce that NFL sponsor TERVIS has joined the growing list of eco-minded corporate partners helping to fund 100 Yards of Hope, FORCE BLUE’s year-long coral reef restoration project in the waters off Miami.
FORCE BLUE veteran Andy Gamberzky played a key role in last month’s passing of NFL Green’s “Golden Shovel” from one Super Bowl host city to the next. Donning mask, fins and SCUBA gear, Gamberzky swam the symbolic talisman over 200 miles from Miami, home to Super Bowl LIV, to Tampa, which will play host to the game in February.
As part of Project Protect, our multi-year mission to help preserve and restore the marine resources and coastal habitats of Florida, FORCE BLUE special operations veterans and staff are teaming up with Keep Florida Beautiful in a campaign to remind Floridians that the natural beauty of Florida extends beyond the waterline.
