7 Days For The Troops
7 Days For The Troops” was started in 2006 by Scott Burns, a Marine Veteran with a service connected disability. Scott wanted to do something in support of our men and women fighting over seas, so he decided to build a 20 foot high tower outside a mall in Tupelo, Mississippi, where he would stay for seven days (168 hours).
The campaign turned into an annual event, through which Scott and his family have raised tens of thousands of dollars for American service members and veterans’ programs by collecting donations through sponsors, raffle drawings, and creative fundraising challenges among the audience.
The first annual event in the State of Texas will take place in Fredericksburg on November 23-30. All proceeds will go to Purple Heart Homes.
