The three awardees of the second Burt Williams Veteran Small Business Grant included:

  1. The Bastards’ Road Project (BRP) @bastardsroadproject is a non-profit dedicated to taking veterans on long distance hikes to heal the wounds of war.

In 2004, Jonathan Hancock fought in the Battle of Ramadi with the 2nd Battalion, 4th Marines. They suffered one of the highest casualty rates in the Iraq War, 1 in 4 were wounded or killed. Hancock struggled to reacclimate when he came home in 2009. In 2015, he embarked on an epic journey to save himself – 5,800 miles across the country…on foot. This is where the road project was started.

BRP was created by Hancock and Tiffany Hallier. Following Hancock’s cross-country walk, and the success of the documentary film, Bastards’ Road, he knew there was something to be said about long-distance hiking and processing old memories. He had seen first-hand the healing effects of nature and the outdoors can have on the veteran and with this in mind, he was urged to start the dream of helping other veterans accomplish an arduous hike through the American wilderness along different trail systems in our nation’s national parks. Following a fundraiser for Bastards’ Road movie, Hallier and Handock set out to create what was in Handcock’s head and out of the noise came Bastards Road Project. https://www.bastardsroadproject.org/?fbclid=IwAR0vBBr9Kdv_M6fwozOusacwhBlswOQ4wYlbAVmvf3tzZVF1I6z8sC-7yuo

It provides a setting where veterans can share stories and provide emotional support while working towards a common goal. MDLF provides national awareness by participating in car shows, amateur races, and organizing other awareness events.
