The mission of the Flyin Ryan Hawks Foundation is to extend the impact of Ryan’s life by inspiring students, athletes, adventurers and others to live meaningful lives that draw from their unique self-composed Core Values. We seek to make the world a better place one person, one day, one Core Value, one decision at a time. We have three programs that help to implement our mission:

Flyin Ryan Core Values Challenge

It all starts here! The Core Values Challenge, as the name implies, is a call to action for anyone interested in discovering more about what motivates them and wishes to discover their personally held set of Core Values. It is very simple, but very powerful. Learn more and get started on your journey of self-discovery!

The Flyin Ryan Adventure Scholarship Program

The Adventure Scholarship Program acknowledges and encourages the pursuit of passion that is grounded in Core Values and financial need. Applications from individuals are considered on a rolling basis and awards are made to those who have a drive to succeed, who create their own set of Core Values, and who demonstrate a level of financial need.

The Flyin Ryan Decisions Program

The Flyin Ryan Decisions program is intended to guide students, athletes, coaches, adventurers and others to explore the things that are most important to them, that drive their decision making on a daily basis. It is a curriculum that helps people identify what is inside them, write these down as a personal set of Core Values, and share them with peers and others who are important in their lives. To date, there are versions of the Decisions Program that are geared towards three groups: Athletes and coaches, students and educators, and individuals of all ages. Learn more.
