I am not sure if you guys knew, but we have two former military members who are employees of Tots2Tweens.com. And here at Tots2Tweens (and personally as well) we are always looking to support military members both active and former. We brainstormed some ideas and came up with a wonderful event to raise money for a wounded veteran (we found him through an organization called “Operation Second Chance.”) Now, we just needed a name…this is where the military education came into play. Jess & Derek came up with “Got Your 6” – I had no idea what this meant…then they told me – it means “Got Your Back”…(your 6 o’clock). Immediately I thought – this is perfect. What a better way to show our former military – our returning wounded – that we’ve got their backs…so, this event was born.
I’ll get to the specific details about the event below – but first, I’d like to introduce you to Robert Bartlett who will be the recipient of the funds raised from this event.
In his own words (please note that some of the images in this video may not be appropriate for children):
Hopefully, you are inspired by his story as we were. How can you help?
1. Get a team together and play in the tournament. 100% of the registration funds raised will go to Robert to help him continue his journey of health and recovery from his injuries. Registration is just $40 per team – there are two divisions: Adult (players 16 and over only) and Family (no age restrictions). Each participant will receive a t-shirt!
