Our Mission

On May 12, 2012 Austin Brashears finished what is one of the most epic stories of all time: his life story. He lived colorfully and beautifully during his 21 years and painted pictures all over the world of his kindness, generosity, and positive spirit. We have decided to begin the stage of moving forward to embark on a grand adventure to create new memories with Austin every day. It can be something as little as trying a new flavor of coffee or going underwater go-cart racing in his honor. We invite you to play with us, laugh with us, and take risks with us. We encourage you to put your Austin foot forward and begin to live with Austin and his energetic spirit as your guide.

He needs our help to finish his epic adventure.

We’ll be posting our adventures here for you to read and hopefully be inspired by, but we want to hear from you too! When you do something amazing and incredible or just a little something you know that Austin would LOVE or appreciate, throw on your Austin merch (v-neck, tank, or bracelet) and take a picture! Write up a post and email it to us at doitforaustin@gmail.com and we’ll share it with everyone!

Have a great Austin Adventure Day,

Sage, Brittany, Cole, & Shannon

Bridge to Nowhere

My name is Oren, I was honored to be one of the recipients for the "Do It For The Story" Scholarship. I've been blessed to hear many stories from many people who knew Austin. I've tried to embody Austin's adventurous and joyful spirit summer by going on a plethora of adventures! One that specifically stands out is when I went hiking with some of my friends to "

Bridge to Nowhere". Located in Azusa, this 10 mile hike in the dry heat leads to a bridge that goes nowhere. Also, under the bridge, there are ponds where one can go swimming in. While the hike is not in the most comfortable conditions, my friends and I decided to embark on this journey and "do it for the story". And it most definitely was worth it! I made some amazing memories with some of my friends that I'll cherish for a long time to come. We even hiked multiple miles inside the San Gabriel River! This experience, along with many other I've had this summer, are due to embodying the amazing attitude that Austin had. I will continue to wear the blue wristband that was gifted to me whenever I go on adventures as a reminder that I should be living life for the story and always be trying new and fun things!
