When Bruce Roberts retired from the US military after 27 years of service in 2021, the former CrossFit affiliate owner and long-time CrossFit athlete needed a new purpose.

“I could have gone into the corporate world and chased the dollar, but I wanted to do something meaningful,” said Roberts, who served in the Army in Afghanistan in 2008.

“And then when the US withdrew from Afghanistan over the summer, I really felt like we failed to live up to our commitment to some of those folks,” he explained.

This led Roberts to start August Mission, a Utah-based non-profit in September of 2021, whose purpose is to help recover, resettle and assist refugees.–
