Our Values



At the House of Champions Foundation, we celebrate the achievements of those who have turned adversity into victory. Our founder, Russell Allmandinger, is a testament to this, transforming physical challenges into a platform for inspiring others. Join us as we champion the achievements of the amputee and disabled communities.



Strength is more than physical prowess; it's the resilience to face life's challenges head-on. At the HOCF, we foster this strength in the amputee and disabled communities. Through our work, we aim to inspire and empower individuals to discover their inner strength and become their best selves.



Triumph over adversity is at the heart of our mission. The HOCF is a beacon of hope, demonstrating that physical limitations do not define one's potential. We stand as a testament to the triumph of the human spirit, empowering individuals to overcome their challenges and reach new heights.

The Founder

In addition to his athletic pursuits, Russell Allmandinger has also founded the House of Champions Foundation (HOCF). The HOCF's mission is to serve the amputee and disabled communities, inspiring them to discover their inner champion - physically, mentally, emotionally, and financially.

Drawing from his own experiences of overcoming immense adversity, Russell understands firsthand the challenges faced by those with physical disabilities. His journey of enduring numerous surgeries, battling chronic pain conditions, and overcoming the darkest periods of depression and anxiety has equipped him with invaluable insights into the struggles of individuals dealing with disabilities.

The House of Champions Foundation is committed to aiding these communities on their journey to become their best selves. Through various programs and initiatives, the HOCF provides support and resources to empower individuals with disabilities to overcome obstacles and achieve their goals. Whether it's through adaptive sports programs, mental health counseling, financial assistance, or educational workshops, the HOCF strives to make a tangible difference in the lives of those it serves.

Russell's vision for the HOCF is rooted in the belief that adversity can be turned into strength. By sharing his own story of resilience and triumph, he hopes to inspire others to embrace their challenges and unlock their full potential. The House of Champions Foundation stands as a beacon of hope and support for individuals with disabilities, proving that with determination, perseverance, and community, anything is possible.
