(January 14, 2016 – Cypress, CA) Trident University International (Trident) is proud to announce that they have raised more than $7000 dollars for Snowball Express, a charity dedicated to improving the lives of children of men and women who have died while on active since 09/11. The donations came from Trident staff, faculty, Board members, and the general public.

Travis Allen, President & CEO of Trident, along with Esmeralda Silva, Vice President Outreach & Strategic Alliances, traveled to Fort Worth, TX on Sunday, December 13th for the Snowball Express 2015 “Walk of Gratitude.” This event was an opportunity for the general public to vocally support affected children in a personal way.

“Taking part in the ‘Walk of Gratitude’ was a remarkable experience, giving us an opportunity to support a great cause. We here at Trident are happy to support Snowball Express and all they do to help families,” said Travis Allen, President & CEO.

Starting at the Will Rogers Memorial Center and down Gendy Street, families walked along the route surrounded by well-wishers. After reaching the Fort Worth Museum of Science and History, they were welcomed and thanked by Mayor Betsy Price.

Since 2006 Snowball Express has lent a helping hand to children who have lost parents in the service. Their mission is to enrich lives by creating new, happy memories during a four-day weekend that’s filled with fun activities like sporting events, dances, an amusement park, and much more. Most importantly, children have an opportunity to meet and bond with others in a similar situation, letting them know that they are not alone.
