Wayne Anderson Volunteers with Snowball Express (for the 7th year)

ABOUT SNOWBALL EXPRESS

Our Beginning:

logo
Snowball Express started in early 2006 with a simple idea: Provide hope and new memories to the children of military fallen heroes who have died while on active duty since 9/11.
America should honor and pay tribute to the children of those military fallen heroes who have died while honorably serving since 9/11.

In December of 2006, nearly 900 family members from all across America and the world gathered in Southern California for an unforgettable holiday gathering. Kids and widows discovered they weren't alone. And they found they weren't forgotten.
It was a totally volunteer effort which came together in just a few months to create the largest all-expense-paid gathering for the families of our fallen warriors since 9/11.

We are frequently asked how and why Snowball Express started. The following paragraphs will outline the beginning of the organization that started in 2006 with a simple mission, to bring hope and new memories to the children of our military heroes who had lost their life while serving our country since September 11, 2001.

The Need for Hope:

Many of our heroes made promises to their families planning for the future when they would return home. Unfortunately, while fighting for our freedom, many made the ultimate sacrifice and never came home. Snowball Express works to keep those promises alive for the children and surviving spouses or our nation’s heroes.
 
Creating New Memories:

In 2007, another unique event was planned for the week after Thanksgiving. This time, over 1,100 children and surviving parents attended as guests of Americans, corporations, and service groups who donated their time, money and resources to create another healing event. Nearly 400 family members attended Snowball Express for the first time. In 2008 a total of 1437 attendees came to the third annual event with over 900 children attending, many for the first time.  Children who had attended previous events rekindled friendships with children met at previous years and new children attending for the first time were mentored by those who had been before.   Emotional healing was occurring on many different levels.

American Airlines, Oakley, BP America, Quiksilver, Panda Express, Taco Bell, Hilton Anaheim, Anaheim Marriott, Sheraton Anaheim, Sheraton Park, Southwest Airlines, AirTran Airways, JetBlue Airways, Disneyland and countless other partners and sponsors, combined with thousands of volunteers in Southern California and all across America, contributed and volunteered because it was the right thing to do. Nationally recognized organizations like Ladies Auxiliary VFW, Rotary Clubs, Vietnam Veterans of America, American Legion, Patriot Guard Riders and others stepped forward to donate their resources and gifts. Other local service clubs, churches and schools also donated resources to help the cause.

American Airlines stepped up to again to be the "Official Airline of Snowball Express", with six aircraft donated for charter purposes. All pilots and flight attendants donated their time to spend the weekend with the families. American Airline employees spent thousands of man hours donating their time to make these 5 days and these charters something for these children to always remember. Other companies from all across America are also helping to show these children and our fallen heroes’ surviving spouses that they’re not forgotten and that America cares.

In 2009, 1500 attendees came to Dallas, Texas for Snowball Express IV. The event was held in Dallas for the first time and once again American Airlines stepped up to the plate, this time providing eight charter flights for our families.

The families enjoyed a day at Southfork Ranch and an evening at the Mesquite Rodeo, an interactive day at the Dallas Convention Center capped off by a concert by Jeff Senour and the CTS Band.The final day was spent at the new Cowboy's Stadium in Arlington, Texas featuring a concert by Gary Sinise and his Lt. Dan Band.

Become a part of it.

If you’re a corporation, become a sponsor. If you’re an organization, lend us your hearts to help mend those of the survivors in small towns and big cities all across America. If you’re an individual, we’ll take your dollars. One or a thousand. There are no votes in these efforts. No lobbying, no politics. No Republicans. No Democrats. Only Americans. These people died as Americans. Let’s step up as Americans and help their families. Dig deep. Please. They deserve no less.

Jon Covington participates in Disney 5K and half marathon….in the same day!

Always looking for a new challenge, Jon recently decided to couple family time with training time. Not only did he sign himself up for the Disney Wine & Dine Half Marathon, he also signed up the entire family for the Mickey's Jingle Jungle 5k. The day started with an early morning bus ride to the starting line at 5:30 AM. "What better way to start the day in Disney than getting up early and hitting the park before they officially open!", says Jon.

All six members of his family completed the 5k and then Jon was back at the starting line again for the 10:00 PM start of the half. "RunDisney did a great job of creating a fun atmosphere. This was definitely a top 10 race experience for me" says Jon. While he missed his time goal of 2:00 he reminds himself that "I did better than all those who didn't sign up."

It appears that the family is now hooked on the 5k distance…they're all requesting a new race to try out. Covington's next race is the Surf 'N Santa in Virginia Beach this December.

"Maroon Five" takes Beach JA's 2nd place award.

Jon Covington’s BEACH JA soccer team of 13+ boys took second place this weekend to finish the season. It was Covington’s second year coaching the 13+ division and the league’s first year of issuing final competitive standings. Covington has been a coach for BEACH JA in both the soccer and baseball programs for 10 years. He says ‘that’s one of the great things with Homeschooling in Hampton Roads. We’ve got great kids and great parents and there are enough families that allow us the opportunity to provide a sports program for the Homeschool community.’

The Covington’s homeschool all four of their children and all participate in the BEACH JA programs. To summarize his season, Covington says that ‘I was so excited for my boys to come out, play hard, and be rewarded for their efforts. Every year just seems to get better. It’s fantastic to see these young men develop their skills and learn to enjoy the life lessons that soccer and all sports provide.’

Covington Hendrix Anderson Architects Sponsors Virginia Rush Soccer Club

Virginia Beach, VA

Two years ago Chris Hendrix had three children playing in the Virginia Rush Soccer Club, and he was volunteer coaching several of the teams.

He wanted to do even more to help the nonprofit soccer club, so he began kicking around a few ideas. What he came up with was a bit unusual. The Lynnwood resident decided he would not only provide Rush with the 700 soccer balls it bought each year, he would design and produce them as well.

“Honestly, it is pretty hard because you’re laying out a sphere,” said Hendrix, President of the Virginia Beach based firm Covington Hendrix Anderson Architects. “I used to be a graphic designer, so I have some background in that. ”The material cost of the balls is about $6,000, he said. Fortunately, several sponsors have stepped forward each year to split the costs. In exchange, the soccer balls feature the local businesses’ colorful logos on the panels. “Sometimes the logos need reworking,” Hendrix said, so the images can fit in the ball’s pentagon-shaped panels. But the result is so striking, Hendrix hasn’t yet run into trouble finding sponsors for the soccer balls.

Last year’s sponsors were Premier Soccer, a Hilltop store; Virginia Beach-based Ervin Architectural Products; Guadalajara, the Mexican restaurant chain in Hampton Roads; and Covington Hendrix Anderson Architects.

“The second year we improved the quality of the ball,” Hendrix said. “We’ve had a lot of people wanting to be on the ball.”

Hendrix will soon begin designing the balls for the third year and is uncertain how the economy might affect the sponsorships. Meredith Flaherty, one of Rush’s directors of coaching, hopes area businesses will step forward again this year. The soccer balls are used in the club’s recreational programs, Flaherty said, as well as REACH, the soccer league’s community outreach program. A number of the donated balls are used by the mentally and physically disabled children in the organization’s Tops Program, and others also go to the organization’s inner-city programs.

“We run a lot of community outreach programs,” Flaherty said. “Not-for-profit organizations can’t really go without contributions like this. Ultimately, what it helps with is to keep the costs down so local communities aren’t priced out of playing soccer.”

Some of last season’s surplus balls even made it to Africa, where they were handed out to children during a mission trip made by a co-sponsor from last year. Having the balls donated each year saves the Virginia Rush Soccer Club about $7,500, Flaherty said.

“It’s a wonderful savings for us, and its good advertising for the sponsors that participate.”
