Tour to Stop at Local Sport Clips Haircuts While Raising Funds for Wounded Veterans’ "Smart Homes"

LITTLE ROCK, Ark. – The Wounded Warriors Family Support Mustang will stop at Sport Clips Haircuts in Little Rock as part of the High Five Tour 2013.

The High Five Tour is rallying communities across the country to say “thank you” and show their appreciation to our country’s military families for their sacrifices. 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 the car with a message of gratitude to our country’s veterans and their families. During the five-month tour, the red, white and blue, 850 horsepower 2013 Mustang GT500 “Super Snake” will cover more than 21,000 miles, traveling to more than 60 cities and making stops in 48 states.

The High Five Tour 2013’s mission is also to raise funds to build two “smart homes” for two deserving wounded warriors and their families — SFC John Masson of Fayetteville, N.C., and Sgt. Rusty Dunagan of Guthrie, Okla. Wounded Warriors Family Support has partnered with the Gary Sinise Foundation to build the “smart homes,” and 100 percent of all funds donated to the High Five Tour will go directly to the construction of the homes. The specially designed homes are custom-built to provide severely wounded veterans quality of life and independence that otherwise would not be possible.

Wounded Warriors Family Support is proud to partner with Sport Clips Haircuts during the High Five Tour 2013. Now through July 26, supporters can donate to the High Five Tour at the more than 1,000 Sport Clips locations nationwide. The High Five Tour will also make stops at many Sport Clips locations across the country.

The High Five Tour 2013 will stop at the following Sport Clips Haircuts location in your area on Thursday, June 27:

  • 12800 Chenal Parkway, Suite 5, Little Rock, 9 a.m.

“We’re excited to bring the High Five Tour 2013 to Little Rock,” said Col. John Folsom, founder and president of Wounded Warriors Family Support. “It’s very powerful to see the show of support from across the nation for our country’s military families and to see the direct impact the tour will have on the lives of these two wounded warriors and their families.”
