In 2015, Team BrAvery members Adam Bright, Corey Peyerk, Stefan Bunecky, Kristine Koo, Wingman and Buzz pushed a 3,100 pound pickup truck 26.2 miles in 6.5 hours to raise funds for the Fanconi Anemia Research Fund.

We are just trying to help.

In May 2013, Team BrAvery biked the entire Natchez Trace through Mississippi, Alabama, and Tennessee, 410 total miles. Team members were Jim & Lori Gabbert, Wingman and Buzz. Monies were raised for research of Fanconi anemia and Bone Marrow Transplants.

Team BrAvery

In 2014, Team BrAvery members, Troy Couture, Zar Toolan (aka "Hollywood"), Orion Marx (aka "Wingman") and Buzz (aka "Charlie Scott") first biked across Missouri from St. Louis to Kansas City, then raced 340 miles back down the Missouri River to St. Louis in kayaks (after a one month flood-delay!).

Team BrAvery was accepting challenges before there was a Team BrAvery! In fact, we were on our way back from a double crossing run across the Grand Canyon (called a Rim to Rim to Rim) when we got word that Avery had been diagnosed with Fanconi anemia. That was early May 2010 and by the end of that year, Avery had received her bone marrow transplant. Team BrAvery Challenges rely on a core group of adventure seekers that seek to have some fun while raising monies and awareness for support of Fanconi anemia and bone marrow transplant patients.

There are many other team members of Team BrAvery, including the researchers and medical staff at the University of Minnesota Amplatz Children's Hospital, the Fanconi Anemia Research Fund, and the National Bone Marrow Donor Program. These people are the ones doing the really hard work! When Team BrAvery hits the water or road on another challenge, it's just our way of trying to help them.

The real Champions of Team BrAvery are the kids that face numerous challenges from Fanconi anemia. They also take these on One Challenge at a Time! We just want to help them, their families, and the organizations that assist them all.
