Light Up To Live is proud to announce a new partnership with Boots for Troops, an outstanding military support organization out of the Humble/Houston area that does amazing work for enlisted troops and Veterans. Our foundation will support their organization this year as they raise money for a service dog trained by the Patriotic Service Dog Foundation with an exciting truck raffle. A portion of the proceeds from tickets sold will fund the training to prepare a service dog to be paired with a Veteran in need. The goal is to raise $25,000 from the truck raffle to aid in funding the service dog.
For each entry purchased, a raffle ticket will be filled out with contact information and entered into the drawing to be commenced on stage October 17th, 2020 at Boots For Troops Concert in the Country. You do not need to be present to win.

While stress can take its toll on anyone, many of the members of our military are faced with the challenges of post-traumatic stress (PTS) after experiencing or witnessing combat-related events. One of the primary goals of Light Up To Live is to help Veterans that are struggling with this issue. In addition to providing polychromatic light therapy systems, we work with and provide support to likeminded organizations to help our military heroes find the support they need on their road to recovery. If you are a Veteran and would like to apply for a polychromatic light system, please click here to submit an application for consideration, There are also a number of resources where you can learn more and get treatment no matter where you live.

Did you know that in spite of restrictions for gathering and the April and May closure of most gyms, our friends at the Adaptive Training Foundation continue to ADAPT! It’s what they DO! Class 19 meets online several times a day to review all the elements that would be in their program if they were able to meet face to face. They discuss everything from physical exercise, mental and emotional coaching, to sharing goals and challenges, and much more. Light Up To Live Foundation is looking forward to delivering to each of the graduates of Class 19 a polychromatic light therapy system. This donation is made possible by the generosity of David and Jane Melone of InLight Therapy.
