MAC Safety Consultants Announces 3rd Annual MAC Safety Bowl to Benefit Legacies Alive
We are pleased to announce that this year’s 3rd Annual MAC Safety Bowl football tournament will be hosted at Highmark Stadium in Pittsburgh, on Saturday, December 19th at 9 A.M.
This tradition was started in 2013 as a way to give back to the community and provide something special during the holidays. After its inaugural year, MAC Safety teamed up with Legacies Alive, a non-profit organization dedicated to honoring the legacy of every service member killed in action during the Global War on Terror, and supporting Gold Star families.
This year’s challenge, “Swim For Their Sacrifice,” features Navy combat veteran, Chris Ring, swimming the entire length of the Mississippi River in honor of our fallen heroes who left behind spouses. Chris started his swim from Lake Itasca, MN on June 6. He is projected to reach the Gulf by early December. Throughout his sixth month journey, Chris is meeting with families of the fallen at events and on the banks of the Mississippi. Legacies Alive will celebrate the conclusion of the second Legacy Challenge and also Chris becoming the first American to swim the entire length of the Mississippi at the 2015 Army/Navy Game.
In addition to the event on Saturday, there will be a Private Concert on December 18th featuring Pittsburgh based band, The Clarks. The money that Legacies Alive raises from this event goes towards supporting the families of our nation’s fallen heroes, building memorials in the hometowns of those heroes, and sponsoring Legacy Challenges.
Please consider participating in this great event, whether as a sponsor or participant in the tournament.
