LIVE TO LOVE. FIGHT FOR PEOPLE.

Almost a decade ago the world got to know Justin Wren through his successful mixed martial arts career in the UFC – from starring in the Spike reality show “The Ultimate Fighter,” to becoming a dominating force in the heavyweight division, to his MMA record of 15-2. Today, the world knows this 6-foot-3-inch, 265-pound fighter for the size of his heart.

Following a six-year struggle with addiction and depression in his early career, Justin stepped away from MMA to seek out purpose and passion for his life. What he found was a forgotten tribe of Mbuti Pygmies deep in the jungles of the Congo, beaten down by economic enslavement, disease, and hopelessness.

Through his Fight for the Forgotten initiative, 1,500 members of this formerly enslaved people group are now free and flourishing on 3,000 acres of their own land with access to clean water and their own farms.

 

Life is not meant to be lived alone. The difference between men who live good lives and men who live great lives is association.

As men, we tend to find value in accomplishments. Identity is often wrapped up in what we’ve done, what we’re doing and how much we have. When a man fails at something, we tend to internalize it deeply and we think, ‘I’m worthless, I have no hope.’ We want to help men see that failure is an event, not a person.

Join us for this night of brotherhood, as together we tackle and face the battles that we encounter every day.

Ticket price includes dinner.
