Ranger Road is a nonprofit charity providing veterans the necessary tools to be successful during the crucial transition from military to civilian life. It was founded by Army Ranger, MMA fighter and Police Officer, Mikhail Venikov. Ranger Road believes the bond and camaraderie created in the military is truly special and an experience only those who have served are able to grasp an understanding of.
By pushing towards lasting solutions that bring veterans with and without disabilities together with civilians, we can be part of a community and support system that thrives on community involvement, physical and emotional wellness. The activities and programs developed have been proven to help veterans handle stress, lower rates of anxiety and depression, and improve the overall wellness of the veterans.
In order to assist our veterans we need your help! By supporting Ranger Road you are supporting innovative, result-oriented programs, and increasing public education and participation.

What do you think of when someone mentions PTSD? Do you see a soldier not able to remove himself from the horrors of war? Or could you picture that same person performing daring feats, competitive games, and taking risks of another sort?
That transformation is being made possible by changes in the way the medical and psychological fields see PTSD. Let me explain.
After a study examining the brains of postmortem, blast-exposed military veterans and finding 'Chronic Traumatic Encephalopathy in Blast-Exposed Military Veterans' (click to read the study); we have a greater understanding of how we can help Veterans heal. Any level of traumatic brain injury can cause pituitary gland damage that results in hormone deficiency. We also know that hormones are a key factor in the way we interpret our world. . From a physiological standpoint, Ranger Road programs increase the brain-derived neurotropic factor (BDNF) which is proving to counteract the effects of brain injuries. Below are studies/articles from leaders in the fields of endocrinology and psychiatry that support our approach.
Ranger Road is supported through your donations and grants. 100% of the proceeds goes to our veterans. Without our community's involvement and support, Ranger Road would not be able to carry out its mission of helping veterans through their transition from military to civilian life.We thank you greatly for your generous donation. Every penny counts towards helping our veterans and making their transition extraordinary and empowering!
Our veterans have set goals for obtaining donations to help us keep our veteran programs alive. To help meet their fundraising goals, please fill out the form to donate.
