WE PROVIDE EQUIPMENT, RESOURCES AND ADAPTATIONS TO ENHANCE INDEPENDENT LIVING FOR PEOPLE WITH DISABILITIES.
Bountiful American Foundation, INC. (d.b.a. American Mobility Project) was founded in the spring of 2019 by Mari and Gary Linfoot, and Bob Hyde. The foundation's purpose is to provide mobility and adaptive equipment and resources to those living with disabilities. Gary Linfoot was injured in a helicopter crash while serving in the U.S. Army in Iraq in 2008. He has been the recipient of state-of-the-art mobility equipment, which has enhanced his independence. Gary's technical knowledge and personal use of these devices aided in continued improvements of these devices. Gary and Mari have traveled throughout the country, speaking at schools, companies, and groups about the cost of freedom, citizenship, patriotism, and STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math.) Frequently, they would meet people living with disabilities that didn't have access to the same equipment Gary had. Inspired by this need, with Bob Hyde, they founded the American Mobility Project with the mission to provide this equipment to a community that deserves as much independence and dignity as the resources in our bountiful America can provide.
Bob Hyde was a founder and board member of American Mobility Project. His knowledge and experience was instrumental in the success of the mission of AMP. Bob's love for people and his desire for all people to have access to all the tools to live life to the fullest was important to him. He referred to his work with AMP as the most important and meaningful work of his life.
Bob was a semi-retired sports executive following a career that spanned 27 years in the NFL (Houston Oilers & Tennessee Titans) and six years with the PGA TOUR. In addition to his sports career, he also served as an account executive with a Nashville-based public relations agency for five years. Bob had two adult daughters, Ashley and Hannah.
