Throughout the month of May, Boot Campaign and Team Never Quit sent nearly 50 service members, veterans and patriotic supporters to a dozen Nitro Circus Live events across the nation. Longtime Boot Campaign supporter and Nitro Circus co-creator Travis Pastrana spearheaded the give-back initiative as a way to show gratitude to those who serve, both past and present, and to pay tribute to Memorial Day. Boot Campaign and Team Never Quit were honored to help out with the ticket giveaway, activating their networks to spread the good news. Nearly 500 entries were submitted, with winners receiving a pair of tickets to a Nitro Circus Live event in their area.
The lucky winners were nothing short of ecstatic for the chance to see the show. Notes of thanks were plastered across social media channels, accompanied by snaps of smiling faces, and several veterans noted that they’d watched Nitro Circus DVDs during their overseas deployments. After winning a pair of tickets, Army Soldier Simon shared, “I have had the pleasure of serving our great nation for almost 20 years in the U.S. Army. I look forward to seeing the show live – we enjoyed the taped copies while we were deployed overseas. It was a nice escape from our everyday duties.”
Boot Campaign is thankful for the opportunity to work with Nitro Circus Live and Team Never Quit in our ongoing mission to support America’s military families. Gratitude experiences are invariably some of our most rewarding endeavors, and no less important than direct assistance. It’s always a blast to say “thanks” with an amazing good time, and a privilege to work with organizations that share that philosophy.
