Let the race begin! During the FIGAWI Sailboat Regatta, our Heroes are all hands on deck to assist and crew. The race? It’s action packed: serious fun and camaraderie during a competitive sail from Hyannis to Nantucket… Over 200 boats & a thousand sailors convene each year for this major regatta. It’s a tradition. For 44 years, FIGAWI kicks off each and every Cape and Islands summer season. For our Heroes and their families, this race kicks off a special kind of salute: an all expense paid Holidays For Heroes Experience they will never forget.
After the race, the HFH team gets to work. Our wounded warriors and their families receive a Hero’s welcome Nantucket style, lead by the Nantucket Firefighters Color Guard. It’s the way we do things here, just in time for the Memorial Day Parade and Veterans’ Memorial Service. A good, old fashioned VFW family barbecue culminates a weekend saturated in community, fraternity and solidarity.
This Experience embraces a HFH resolve: ALWAYS honor servicemen and CELEBRATE OUR DUTY to assure our Heroes and their families that their personal sacrifices and the resulting struggles will not go unsupported.VOLUNTEER DONATE 2016 CALENDAR OF EVENTS
