4th For Our Soldiers Event To Include Team Fastrax™ Skydive Performance

4th For Our Soldiers will be at 4657 Catalpa Ct., in Burlington, KY, and is held by the Holiday for Heroes foundation.  The event will be from 4pm to Midnight on Saturday, July 2nd, 2016, and is set to include music by DV8, an inspiring guest speaker, a military tribute video, Rozzi fireworks and an appearance by Team Fastrax™.   The team will be performing their much loved patriotic American Flag demonstration.   Just before 7pm, two skydivers will jump out of the plane and gracefully fly a 2,000 sq. ft. American Flag and a red white, and blue streamer for the spectators below.  

John Hart, owner of Start Skydiving, and member of Team Fastrax™ said, “We are honored to be performing our American Flag skydive to celebrate such an important day in America’s history.  The Declaration of Independence and our resulting freedoms are what truly set us apart from other countries.  God Bless America. ”

According to their website, the Holiday for Heroes foundation was formed in 2005 in an effort to teach our children that we are very blessed to have many freedoms because we are American citizens. Their initial idea was to have a family-style 4th of July celebration, each guest was asked to bring an item that would be sent overseas in a care package.  The popularity of the initial event spread throughout the area and their foundation grew. The attendance for the 4th For Our Soldiers event grew exponentially over the years to over 1500 people paying tribute to our soldiers and their families.  They have since expanded their efforts to include scholarships to graduating high school seniors who have had their lives affected by their parent’s military service and grants to Military and First Responder families.

Team Fastrax™ is sponsored by SELECTiON.COM®, a leading provider of criminal background checks and pre-employment screening services.   Team Fastrax™ is the most ambitious professional skydiving team in the world.   The parachute demonstration team has a roster of more than twenty-nine active members, with a collective of more than 300,000 skydives.  Team Fastrax™ has performed exhibition skydives all over the world for audiences large and small as a patriotic display or as a product promotion.
