Ryan's Call Foundation is a non-profit 501(c)(3) charity organization aimed at reaching youth, teens (and families) that has sustained traumatic injuries or loss due to sports related and/or outdoor recreational accidents.
Our goal is to help and assist in such situations by helping to provide needed equipment, services, or encouragement while overcoming such adversities. Our mission is to reach out to those in need, by sharing our faith in Jesus Christ and what He has done for us in such times, and to share Ryan Swain's Lifesong and his extraordinary PERSEVERANCE to overcome obstacles that "took him out of the game" and how Faith shaped his simple but yet amazing life.
Our family has dealt with traumatic sports injuries and unfortunately the grief of losing a dear loved one. No one plans on getting hurt while doing something so ordinary as playing a football game, or doing something you have done hundreds of times and that you love to do, such as hunting or fishing (as Ryan did), much less losing a life. But all too often, such incidents take us completely by surprise, and "take us out of the game". We must face these obstacles, PERSEVERE, and overcome, but we don't have to do this alone.
Ryan's Call wants to provide such opportunities with support through activities that he loved, sports, outdoor recreation, church and faith related activities, and character and leadership building. Ryan's Call also promotes sports and hunting/fishing/water-related Safety Awareness.
The Foundation of everything our organization is built on is Faith in our Lord Jesus Christ and in honor and remembrance of our son, brother, and friend---Ryan Swain
