Tracey Nazarenus is the President and Founder of the Crusaders Equestrian Team, a non-profit 501(c)(3) charity organization with the mission to bring entire communities together so that they can make even more of a difference. They have three (3) programs: Valor for Veterans, Rodeo Royalty, and Crusaders Angles. All programs are based on the same philosophy: Help those in need, and have them “pay it forward,” helping others in the process. Tracey founded Valor for Veterans due to a very moving and trying personal experience she had with her son returning from active duty. Her intervention with her son, and her awakening to the issues of PTSD and the disconnect Veterans have upon returning home, moved her to create Valor for Veterans as an effort to help reduce the number of daily Veteran suicides.
