This week we challenged military families to have some summer fun together in a creative, social distancing approved event we called the USO Summer Fun Challenge! We weren’t disappointed in the least.
Over 100 service members and their loved ones logged in from cities and towns along the Front Range of Colorado and Wyoming, and as far away as Texas and California, to complete a set of 25 challenges requiring imagination, exploration, and quality time connecting with one another. Examples include making paper hats and pretend to be pirates, enjoying a family picnic, making silly faces, and more.
Each challenge was marked complete with the submission of a photo showing off all the fun they’re having, and it was just as exciting for us to see those photos come in throughout the week.
Here’s what happened & what our military family teams said about the event:
