The B-Rad Foundation exists to support youth and their communities by fostering individual empowerment through environmental stewardship, health, and adventure programs. We believe in the next generation's responsibility to embody these principles and are resolved to make a positive and lasting impact within our communities and our planet.
The B-Rad Foundation was created to honor the life and legacy of the brother, son, friend, and lover we all lost too soon. Brad Parker was the embodiment of beauty, strength, and grace. An avid surfer, rock climber, cyclist, and yoga teacher, Brad (36) was tragically killed in a fall while traversing Matthes Crest in Yosemite National Park on August 16, 2014. His death came as a complete shock to all who knew him. Brad was a gentle warrior on a mission to help people. He was a caring friend, passionate yoga teacher, healing massage therapist, and bad-ass outdoorsman with a deep commitment to living boldy and loving deeply. Brad's love for the natural world and his eternal positivity will continue to light our path now and into the future.
