Thank you for supporting our active duty servicemen and women and retired members of the U.S. Armed Forces in honor of Nate Ford, the inspiration behind Maricopa March Madness. Nate was a patriot. He never missed an opportunity to shake the hand of a soldier. He valued freedom and appreciated the sacrifice made by those that protected it.

The Benefactors
All donations made to Maricopa March Madness will be evenly split between two of Nate's favorite organizations; Military Assistance Mission (MAM) and the local American Legion. In 2014 Nate selected Military Assistance Mission as the benefactor of the inaugural tournament because they help families of servicemen and women by providing life essentials like food, rent, utilities, and diapers. Nate didn't think it was right that the families of those willingly protecting our freedoms had to struggle to make ends meet each month.

Nate played baseball on the Maricopa Rams summer baseball team sponsored by the local American Legion Post 133. He was grateful to the American Legion for supporting his love for baseball and for the members of the American Legion who serve and support veterans of the U.S. Armed Forces. We selected the American Legion as the co-benefactor knowing Nate would approve.
