All proceeds and donations raised through this race, the Fourth Annual Fort Worth Snowball Express 5K, will go directly to support the children of our fallen Military Heroes who will be attending our annual gathering in the Fort Worth/ Dallas area from December 9, 2017 through December 13, 2017.
Snowball Express is a DFW based non-profit that serves the children of our fallen military heroes who made the ultimate sacrifice since September 11, 2001. Our mission: Honor America’s fallen military service members who have made the ultimate sacrifice since 9/11 by humbly serving the families they left behind. Champion their children’s future success by creating opportunities for joy, friendship, education, and communal healing, by connecting these families to one another.
This December Snowball Express will host the largest gathering in the world of families of the fallen by bringing nearly 1,800 children and surviving parents to the Dallas-Fort Worth, Texas area. These families will bond with spouses and children who have suffered a similar loss, and experience the realization that they are not alone in their grief and sorrow. We honor the memory of each of their fallen heroes, and show these families the love and gratitude of a grateful nation and thousands of dedicated volunteers. This event also gives the host community an opportunity to show their support and let these children and families know that they are loved and not forgotten.
With the support of our Presenting Sponsor, American Airlines, we are able to bring these families to DFW from across the nation. While we have tremendous in-kind support from American Airlines and other corporations, there is also a significant financial cost associated with gathering these children and their surviving parent or guardian for the 5-day event in the Dallas-Fort Worth area. Your support will help assure that these children will be able to attend this life changing experience in the Dallas-Fort Worth area.
Thank you for your support!
