The $350,000 for the UFC Camaro will benefit the Intrepid Fallen Heroes Fund, a not-for-profit organization dedicated to providing support for the families of United States military personnel injured or lost in performance of their duty. Likewise, the Intrepid Fallen Heroes Fund works to assist our wounded warriors by providing facilities and services that ensure that injured military personnel receive the best possible treatment our nation has to offer. 
 
These privately-funded facilities include the Center for the Intrepid, a state-of-the-art physical rehabilitation facility at the Brooke Army Medical Center in San Antonio, Texas that provides those with severe extremity injuries, severe burns and amputees the best opportunity to regain their ability to live and work productively; and the National Intrepid Center of Excellence (NICoE) in Bethesda, Maryland, a $65 million, 72,000 sq. ft., advanced center dedicated to the diagnosis and clinical care of service members suffering from traumatic brain injury (TBI), post traumatic stress (PTS) and other complex psychological health issues.
