Children of our fallen military and first responders have to grow up without their biggest mentor during their crucial developmental years. Funds raised from the Chick-fil-A First 100 Skate-A-Thon will help provide them healthy activities and mentoring as they grow into adults.
You can help support in two ways. You can donate directly to our charity or one of our participant's fundraising efforts or you can skate.
Participants will raise funds and then skate from 10:30 pm until 6:00 am around the Garden of The Gods Chick-fil-A location. The more money each person raises, the longer breaks they will get during their all night skate-a-thon around the parking lot, AND they can recieve great prizes. Participants who complete the whole night will receive free Chick-fil-A food for a year!
Funds raised will go to Angels of America's Fallen (AOAFallen) to provide healthy activities for children of our fallen so they can pursue a passion of their choice with a coach or instructor who can mentor them. When AOAFallen provides the activities to the children, they commit to sticking with them from the time they sign up all the way until they are 18 years old. Because the children's parent volunteered to serve, and gave all while doing so, they deserve support throughout the entire time they are growing up without them. You can have a very positive impact on the life of a child who's sacrifice without their parent is ongoing
