Brad realizes how blessed he was to have two living parents support him through his youth and ultimately be at his side as he achieved his goals of graduating college and later, becoming a Major League pitcher. With several members of the Military in his family, he has always understood and respected the ultimate sacrifice facing members of our Armed Forces and their families. Brad's appreciation of his own parents and his dedication to assisting kids most in-need triggered the idea of funding scholarships for a few such young people who wish to continue their education but might otherwise be hindered financially by having lost a parent who gave the ultimate sacrifice in service to our country.
With this in mind, PFP has embarked on an annual partnership with the Freedom Alliance Scholarship Fund to offer assistance to select high school seniors who have lost a parent in military service. In 2012-2016, PFP has donated tens of thousands of dollars to help fund such scholarships!
