"The IGY6; is not a brand...

This is a movement of Veterans and First Responders that are ready to stand back-to-back with their fellow brothers and sisters to combat "S.A.D." and be apart of this inspiring, uplifting, and patriotic community."

The Movement

Combating S.A.D.

The IGY6; Foundation has defined, what we believe, are the 3 leading issues that are negatively impacting our veteran and first responder community. 
 Hover over the pics below to see how we are combating S.A.D.

Substance abuse, Alienation, Depression

Substance abuse
Substance abuse

The IGY6; Foundation believes that the over consumption of alcohol, drugs, and prescriptions is throwing fuel onto an open flame. All IGY6; run events will be 100% alcohol free for members and their guests. We encourage our members to seek a healthy and sober lifestyle. We have a great group of men and women willing to guide you on your journey to taking back your life.


The IGY6; teamed up with Workplace to have an IGY6; Members Only App. Similar look and feel to Facebook, this easy-to-use app gives our members a chance to keep in contact with their IGY6; brothers and sisters throughout the world. We have also created our events to be small and intimate so that our members can grow a bond with their group while experiencing something memorable.


The IGY6; Foundation is creating events that will have lasting impressions on our attendees and give them something to look forward to other then their next VA appointment. We also encourage our members to research a more holistic approach to treating depression through the use of medical marijuana prescribed by a legal physician.
