The Fiesta Bowl Charities, in partnership with VetTix, PlayStation, Positive Coaching Alliance and Lerner & Rowe Gives Back hosted a football “Boot Camp” for veterans, service members and their families who participated in a variety of football stations including punt, pass, kick and a special interactive gaming truck presented by PlayStation.
Student-athletes from the University of Central Florida assisted the participants and their families through each station lead by a Positive Coaching Alliance volunteer. The student-athletes were also given the opportunity to sign autographs and take pictures with the participants throughout the event. All the participants and their families as well as the student-athletes had a great time visiting PlayStation truck where they played video games and met the characters that PlayStation provides.
Below are some of the testimonials from the exciting event;
Thank you SO much for hosting this event and making it available to veterans and their families! It was so well organized and SUCH a special opportunity. All involved were class acts from top to bottom. I am beyond grateful!!! My son and his friend had an unforgettable time and it was pure pleasure to see their joy!! My most sincere thanks to Fiesta Bowl Charities. -Lynette, U.S. Army Veteran; 1999-2007
I would like to thank everyone that put on this event me and my family had a great time. It’s not often that you get to do activities like this with college football players but even have the kids run drill and interact with the players they see on TV once again thank and I will be looking forward to this next year.
