My name is Jimmy Peacock and I have had the pleasure of volunteering for the Shootout for Soldiers for the past two years with many of my best friends. As young people who are not currently serving in our military, this event allows us to give back to those that made the difficult decision to serve our country and protect our freedom. Our Wounded Warriors allow us to live our lives the way we do and it is our duty as American citizens to take care of those who are brave enough and courageous enough to sacrfice so much for a country we all love.
The Shootout for Soldiers is a 24 hour lacrosse game benefiting wounded American military members. The event seeks to educate the community about the challenges facing our veterans, engaging them with local service members while rallying to support organizations that are helping our nation’s heroes.
After raising $250,000 in its first two years, the Shootout for Soldiers will return to Baltimore on June 19th and 20th at the McDonogh School. The event will also expand to Long Island on July 24th and 25th at the Field of Dreams Park. The event has been covered by numerous media outlets including ABC, ESPN, NBC, Fox, and Press Box among others.
This year I am asking that you join me and donate to support the Lead the Way Foundation. One hundred percent of the money raised on this page goes directly to supporting the Lead the Way Foundation. Lead The Way Fund, Inc. is a non-profit organization established to raise funds in support of disabled U.S. Army Rangers and the families of Rangers who have died, have been injured or are currently serving in harm’s way around the world. Lead The Way Fund, Inc. will provide spouses and children of deceased, disabled or active duty Rangers with assistance for health and wellness programs and other services determined to be vital to the family’s well-being, beyond what the government can offer. Their website can be found here: http://www.leadthewayfund.org
Please join me in supporting our nations bravest and consider making a donation to this cause. Thank you for your support and generosity.
