A fishing tournament that was launched to memorialize a fallen Navy SEAL will hold its second annual event May 2 from Pompano Beach, Fla.

South Florida resident John Owens, a retired Navy SEAL, launched Naked Warrior Project as a memorial to his brother, Ryan Owens, another SEAL who was killed in action Jan. 29, 2017.

26 North Yachts and the nonprofit Naked Warrior Project will team to host the second annual Naked Warrior Fishing Tournament, with all proceeds going to support the project’s mission to memorialize all fallen Navy SEALs, help injured SEALs in their recovery and to provide families education about building memorials.

“The mission of this organization is to memorialize the courageous sacrifice made by these heroes and to provide support to their families,” said John Owens in a statement. “We are extremely fortunate to be surrounded by such a supportive community that shares our purpose and is willing to jump in and support our cause. Last year’s tournament was more successful than we could have imagined and we’re looking forward to an even greater event this year.”
