Edward P. Furlani Tadpole Foundation

Active Duty Military, Veterans & First Responders Affected By PTS / TBI Are Invited To Join Us For Extreme Outdoor Adventure

Our Mission

Being in the outdoors brings a certain healing that can't be found in a doctor's office or by prescription. High elevation kayaking and overnight backpacking in some of the most beautiful places our country has to offer, provides Veterans an experience that will stay with them for ever.

  • We are a 501(c)(3) with zero overhead, no payroll and 100% of all funds goes directly to our Veteran adventures to cover the cost of equipment/gear, gas & food.
  • Our Adventures Are At No Cost To Veterans. Tadpole Foundation provides all gear/equipment, clothing, transportation from regional office, food, Guides and everything needed for a great experience in the backcountry.
  • In late 2018 we also launched our Veteran Equestrian Program along with avid SoCal winter adventure to include: snowshoeing, cross country skiing, winter kayaking and family events where Veterans can bring their families – all at no cost.

There may come a day when you will want to give up. Don't. Because...The best is yet to come!

Where it all began…

Our Story… begins with a Navy SEAL & American Hero named Eddy. Born in Albany, NY on February 24, 1982. Eddy grew up in Gilbertsville, PA and graduated High School from Boyertown, PA in June of 2000. In mid July that same year he left for Navy Bootcamp with the single purpose of becoming a Navy SEAL.

In 2003 he achieved the first step toward that goal as a proud member of BUD/S Graduating Class 245. After completing SEAL Qualification Training (SQT) in 2004, he officially became a Navy SEAL.
