OMAHA, Neb., April 20, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- Wounded Warriors Family Support's High Five Tour 2015, themed "Mobility is Freedom," will unite communities around the country for a common mission — thanking our nation's military families.
In its sixth year, the High Five Tour 2015 will be unique from previous tours. From April 27 through Aug. 1, the High Five Tour's two mobility-equipped vehicles — a 2015 Ford Explorer and 2015 Ford F-150 — will visit 65 cities across 48 states in this street-level engagement, rallying communities to show appreciation and support to military families for their sacrifices. The red, white and blue vehicles will travel more than 27,000 miles, making stops at car dealerships, community events, veterans' organizations, military bases and race tracks.
During the 17-week tour, Wounded Warriors Family Support invites Americans of all walks of life to show their support for military families by visiting a stop on the tour and signing one of the vehicles with a message of gratitude to our country's veterans and their families.
The tour's mission also is to raise funds to support Wounded Warriors Family Support's new "Mobility is Freedom" program. The program aims to enhance the freedom and independence of combat-wounded veterans by providing grants to purchase Ford vehicles adapted to suit their unique needs.
"We are excited to hit the road once again to say thanks to our country's military families, and we are eager to tell the nation about our new 'Mobility is Freedom' program," said Colonel John Folsom, USMCR (Ret.), founder and president of Wounded Warriors Family Support. "Our belief is that given the right vehicle for mobility, combat-wounded veterans will have the freedom to live productive and quality lives with their families."
Wounded Warriors Family Support is proud to partner with UAW-Ford, Marriott International, Inc., True North Hotel Group, MetLife and Ford dealerships across the country during the High Five Tour 2015.
