For the past few years, Erik “Trek” Utrecht has taken it upon himself to dedicate time, energy, and sore muscles to increase awareness for the Brian Terry Foundation. It is a charity setup to honor the memory of fallen Border Patrol Agent Brian Terry who was killed as a result of Operation Fast & Furious.
Following a 2000 mile solo bike ride last year that ended in a charity auction, this year, Utrecht has organized an incredible list of sponsors to donate items to a second charity auction, the proceeds of which will again go directly to the Brian Terry Foundation.
The PressRelease reads as follows:
“DANGER ZONE AUCTION TO BENEFIT THE BRIAN TERRY FOUNDATION
It has been 5 long years since US Border Patrol Agent Brian A Terry’s life was taken by criminals armed with weapons supplied by the US Government’ failed OPERATION: FAST AND FURIOUS. Since then, only foreign actors involved in the killing have been brought to trial and convicted in US courts. To this day, not a single member of our government has been held accountable for their roles in an operation that armed narco-terror groups and cost the lives of hundreds if not thousands of innocents including Brian Terry. At every turn, powers that be in our own administration continue to keep answers from the family of a man who gave all for his nation.
Today, Brian’s family continue their quest for answers all while working to ensure that the legacy of Brian A Terry remain in the forefront of Americans everywhere. A Marine, small-town cop, Border Patrol Agent, and member of the esteemed BORTAC, Brian was the epitome of a patriot looking only to make the world
a better place. The Brian Terry Foundation continues that legacy in its many missions. 100% volunteer run by Brian’s family, the BTF fights to get answers and accountability regarding Brian’s murder, offers scholarships to young people on their quest to become law enforcement officers, and gives assistance to the families of fallen Border Patrol agents in need.
Starting on 2 January, 2016, the Brian Terry Foundation with the help from ATEi of Michigan, Dark Angel Medical of Colorado, 88 Tactical of Nebraska, American Defense Manufacturing of Wisconsin, and Ballistic Radio of Ohio are teaming up with dozens of other companies to kick off the 2nd annual Danger Zone Auction to benefit the Brian Terry Foundation.
Throughout January, all Americans will have the opportunity to join an amazing fundraising auction that will continue to fund the BTF for years! The online superpower Gunbroker.com has generously offered the use of their site fee-free where over 50 items from across the firearms and firearm training industry will auctioned off and 100% of the proceeds heading to the Brian Terry Foundation.
