Mission to Thank the Nation's Military Families
Be Sure to Visit Bill Brown Ford on Saturday, July 11th to Show Your Support from 10 AM to 3 PM
Livonia, Michigan, June 10, 2015 - Wounded Warriors Family Support's High Five Tour 2015, themed "Mobility is Freedom," will stop in Livonia.
In its sixth year, the High Five Tour 2015 is unique from previous tours. The High Five Tour's two mobility-equipped vehicles - a 2015 Ford Explorer and 2015 Ford F-150 - are visiting 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.
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.
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.
"We are excited to bring the High Five Tour 2015 to Livonia as part of our mission to say thanks to our country's military families," said Colonel John Folsom, USMCR (Ret.), founder and president of Wounded Warriors Family Support. "We also are eager to tell the nation about our new 'Mobility is Freedom' program. 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."
