Christmas In May
Shoe & Toy Delivery
May 11th, 2019
Following the VelocityEHS Slime Your Boss and M-15 Yard-Sale Fundraisers -- the Foundation and it's volunteers delivered 100 pairs of shoes and 100 pairs of socks, hundreds of summer toys and even a magic show to the families of Calumet City, IL.
In collaboration with Alderman DeAndre Tillman, the initial goal was to donate a new pair of shoes to the second grade students of one Calumet elementary school... but we ultimately provided relief to many more. The kids were elated to have a new pair of shoes for the summer and had a ton of fun breaking them in dancing to DJ "Yoboydiggs" music.
Once again, it was all thanks to your donations. The generosity & contributions of our supporters and volunteers made a huge difference in the Calumet City community, and we can’t thank you enough!
A very special thanks to Complete Runner Flint for making this event possible.

Warrior Dog Fundraiser
May 4th & 5th, 2018
Leveraging the influx of traffic and mass-gathering of the annual M15 Yard Sale, a 60-mile event sprawling from Clarkston, MI to Bay City, MI, the Foundation fought 50 MPH winds and blazing heat to raise thousands of dollars for The Warrior Dog Foundation.
Over 400 hamburgers, 200 hot dogs and 50 T-shirts were sold, in addition to many generous donations collected at the event and from friends and family in the weeks leading up to the fundraiser.
At the peak of the event, when the temperature and line of patrons were at their highest - two bald eagles flew above the crowd; diving and barrel rolling around each other as if they were dancing. Hundreds of people briefly paused and cheered for the spectacle.
