Patriots Parade Initiative

Patriots Parade logo

 

 

BlazeSports is a member of R4 Alliance. This Alliance of Programs of Excellence serve Our Military Family by joining forces to overcome challenges we have seen in our industry. www.r4alliance.org     

 

We are excited to announce the launch of a collaborative initiative called the Patriots’ Parade Initiative (PPI) www.patriotsparade.org The initiative uses a virtual wall of all the fallen from out past engagements (including the War on Terror, Vietnam, Korea, and WWII). You can now support Our Military Family by honoring their sacrifice.

BlazeSports is asking YOU to go out and achieve a personal or group summit to memorialize those who meant the most to you. You can also simply do a summit to honor all fallen.

All funds will be used to help the R4 Alliance attain the mutual goals of all members and help ensure their economic viability. When you register for your personal summit, you can choose for a portion of the proceeds to go directly to BlazeSports.

By participating in PPI, you will not only honor those who gave the ultimate sacrifice, you will also ensure that your fellow Service Members, Veterans and their families get the quality resources they need.

We thank you for your support, for the service you have provided, and for your continued service to our country.

Respectfully,
Sam Zapatka, BlazeSports
