SASO Honors Military Families

Members of SASO (Scholars and Athletes Serving Others) joined the Patriot Guard  Riders and led the Walk of Gratitude on Sunday, Dec. 2. The event was  to honor the 1,700 children who have lost a parent in service to the country since 9/11.

The Walk of Gratitude is part of the Snowball Express sponsored by American Airlines. During their stay, the children were treated to a visit to Six Flags, a rodeo in Fort Worth, concert by the Lt. Dan Band at Billy Bob’s  and a Cirque du Soleil  show. SASO boys and their moms welcomed the children as they arrived in Fort Worth with dozens of posters and flags. The Southlake boys also attended evening festivities with the children.
