In May and June of this year, our SW chapters continued to support their communities one charitable event at a time!
Members of Stroller Warriors Charleston, along with their mini warriors, set up shop at the Base Exchange and put together 32 packed lunches for the Low Country Blessing Box Project. Reducing the impacts of food insecurity is the mission of the Low Country Blessing Box Project. There are over 200 blessing boxes placed throughout South Carolina’s low country. The packed lunches included a sandwich, water, fresh fruit, and snacks with an added touch of a greeting/picture/sticker ensemble from a mini warrior.
Members from both Hurlburt Field and Naval Air Station Pensacola participated in the Rett-y, Set, Cure 5k in support of Girl Power 2 Cure in honor of one incredible mini warrior, Lilliana. The run was held in-person and virtually with all donations going to support education and research towards a cure for Rett Syndrome.
In May, Stroller Warriors Quantico supported the Carry the Load Campaign- a nonprofit whose mission is to provide active ways for people to support the sacrifices made by military, veterans, and first responders. The chapter created an online donation campaign- contributions went directly to the Carry the Load Campaign. Members of SW Quantico, along with their families, took part in the Family Heroes Challenge workout. The workout consisted of:
1 Lap around the track
Heroes Challenge Circuit:
- Pull Ups/Alternative
- Push Ups
- Sit Ups
Stroller Warriors Virginia Beach organized their third round of shoe donations for Soles for Souls— collecting shoes at the June events. A pick-up option was available for those who could not attend in-person events.
Pearl Harbor and Kaneohe Bay
Members of both SW Pearl Harbor and SW Kaneohe Bay continue to keep the beaches in the local area clean— organizing beach clean-ups at Hickam Beach and Fort Hase Beach. Beach clean-up events have been an on-going community outreach event!
In June, Stroller Warriors Vandenburg organized a Stroller Warriors table at a neighborhood block party on base— raising awareness about Stroller Warriors and the support/activities the chapter provides for military families. The event was a major success with over 20 new members joining the chapter!
