Welcome Families of Our Fallen Heroes!


Registration for the December Snowball Express event is now open:

Once it opens, it will only be open for families that have attended 5 years or less and graduates. If you have a 17 or 18 year old graduating from high school in the spring of 2018, this will be your last year to attend the December Snowball Express event.  Make sure to sign up early.

Eligibility: For children to be eligible they must turn 5 before the start day of the event. Children will reach their final year of eligibility during their senior year of High School or/or age 18, children cannot turn 19 prior to the event end date.

Over the past decade, true American Heroes, the men and women of the United States Military and their families, have made and continue to make extraordinary sacrifices to protect our freedom.

That’s why we started Snowball Express. Each year with the help of our presenting sponsor, American Airlines, and our other wonderful sponsors and volunteers we are able to bring together children of our fallen military heroes from all over the world for 5 days of making new memories and honoring their parent’s sacrifice.

Message To the Families:

"In 2010, I volunteered at Snowball Express to help out for a couple hours. Four days later I knew I was in. I worried that I didn’t have the background to help these families. I had no experience with that kind of loss. After spending time with the families of Snowball, it became clear to me that I didn’t need experience. It was not me that was going to help heal these families…it was the families healing each other. It became clear to me that my job was to bring them together to heal each other.

My favorite quote from a mom…”Thank you so much. At home, everyday, someone says how sorry he or she is for my loss and that they know how I feel. They don’t. But, at Snowball Express, everyone does.”

We are busy planning another great event, and can’t wait to see our Snowball Family. While the daily events are fun, the highlight for me will be seeing everyone together smiling and having great time."
