R2 SUPPORTS FIGHT FOR THE VETERANS
Jacksonville, FL – January 28, 2012
On Saturday, January 26th associates from the R2 Logistics’ Jacksonville operations branch spent their day preparing the University of North Florida Arena for the 3rd Annual Fight for the Veterans event. The event consisted of over 12 action-packed MMA, Muay Thai and Kickboxing bouts. All the proceeds from the event went towards the Veterans Farm whose mission is to help disabled combat veterans reintegrate back into society through the use of horticulture therapy.
R2 associates’ tasks at the event included cleaning up after a previous college wrestling match, carrying wrestling mats and storing them, setting up the ringside VIP section of tables and chairs and erecting a barrier around it. After set up was complete the Veterans Farm presented all volunteers with tickets to the event.
Ryan Mason, R2 Logistics National Salesman, was one volunteer at the event and said, “With having a few family members currently in the military, I felt this was a small way of giving back to them for all they do to help protect our country.”
