Team Boomer Fund

Many of you have heard that Chris and Lily Rogers' son Boomer has a terminal disease. In addition to the overwhelming emotional devastation such a diagnosis brings, it is typically accompanied by some type of financial hardship for the family which is the impetus for this program. With the Rogers family’s permission, it has been named in Boomer’s honor.

The Team Boomer Fund has been set up to benefit families within the explosives community with a child, 18 years or younger, who has a seriously debilitating medical condition or who is terminally ill resulting in financial hardship. The family could submit an application for funding to be paid through the Team Boomer Fund. This is not restricted to relatives of IABTI members, but available to those with a familial connection to the EOD community, because: in this family, no one fights alone!

You can make a difference by donating today.
