In Sullivan’s continued efforts to recognize the remarkable service of our brave military warriors, we recently sponsored a major week-long VA event in San Diego, the National Veterans Summer Sports Clinic (NV SSC). During the event, Sullivan enjoyed exclusive sponsorship of a “Block Party” featuring a popular entertainer, John Corbett (most notably as a male star of Sex & the City), his band, and his well-known movie star mate, Bo Derek. Hosted on the famous Midway aircraft carrier docked in San Diego Bay, over 500 veterans and guests enjoyed this unique and fun event.
The NV SSC is a Veterans Administration-sponsored unique assembly of over 100 recently seriously disabled soldiers and their immediate families plus hundreds of certified volunteers guiding the vets through a rigorous program of surfing, track & field, kayaking, cycling, and sailing activities at various prestigious locations in the San Diego region. Ten designated teams competed to take home the winning banner. These efforts are directed at complementing the therapy provided in daily rehabilitation programs. The activities not only strengthen their bodies but improve their overall well-being and self-worth.
This special event was another Sullivan team effort continuing to demonstrate genuine Sullivan commitment to recognize and honor our disabled veterans. Many more of these impressive activities will be enjoyed in the future.
