The PX3 Patriots are an all-veteran, co-ed softball team that represents each branch of the military and
includes Honor Recipients, US Navy SEALS, Veteran Actors, US Green Berets, Amputee Wounded Warriors and Wounded Warriors. These veterans are dedicated to creating educational and inspirational experiences to support solution-based research in the areas of mental health and brain safety, including concussions and Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD). They do so through kid’s clinics, hosting private receptions and motivational speaking engagements, and visiting children, military service members and amputees in hospitals throughout the country.
“This will be an amazing event as we support two great foundations that continue to change the lives of athletes and our military service members,” says Brad Layzell, Founder and Chairmen of PX3 Sports Science and PX3 Research Foundation. “Fans will have the opportunity to see their favorite celebrities up close and enjoy a fun family event.”
About the benefiting foundations:
The PX3 Research Foundation was founded by athletes and warriors with firsthand experience in traumatic brain injuries, regenerative health, and mental health. It is a trusted source for fellow athletes, warriors, coaches and parents for solution-based education, tools and research dedicated to advanced brain health and brain safety.

The Lone Survivor Foundation restores, empowers, and renews hope for our wounded service members and their families through health, wellness, and therapeutic support. Transitioning to post-military life, whether wounded in combat or simply adjusting to the civilian sector, will often cause difficulty for the service member and his or her family. The Lone Survivor Foundation helps America’s wounded service members and their families adjust to the effects of their experiences by providing an understanding and acceptance of who they are as a person, a family, and a community.
