“Alexa, play ‘Baby Come Back’ by Player”
A new and improved edition of all things Hang Tough
Did you miss us? Well, worry no more: The Current is back and ready to fill you in on everything going on in the Hang Tough family.
On June 8th, Hang Tough kick-started what we hope will blossom into a beautiful partnership with Tallahassee Memorial Healthcare Animal Therapy during our Family Fun Event at the Challenger Learning Center: Imax Theater. This exciting afternoon included both a sensory-friendly showing of the documentary film, Super Power Dogs and a special session with TMH Animal Therapy dogs afterwards. Needless to say it was a tail-wagging good time and we hope to partner with TMH Animal Therapy for some of our future events.

Speaking of new partnerships, have you heard that there’s a spotlight in the sky for Tallahassee’s bravest superheroes?! With the strongest heroes in town, Hang Tough is suiting up and joining Infinity Con Tallahassee on June 29th at the Donald L. Tucker Civic Center for an event that is sure to be one of your best summer memories. Hang Tough will be hosting a ‘Cool Down Zone’ for the event to ensure everyone has a super experience. For tickets and more information on Infinity Con Tallahassee, please visit: https://infinitycontally.com/?fbclid=IwAR0aw_rrCmnn4Edp8vrU87eD7IX02JOAfgmCVdmLKCVCZTZhi_IaGvKopoc
We are also requesting help from several superheroes of our own for the ‘Cool Down Zone.’ If you are interested in suiting up and serving as a volunteer for the event, please sign up with the following link: https://forms.gle/eTfHMYp13pj5qGf1A We are especially in need of individuals to volunteer during the afternoon shifts of Infinity Con.
Looking ahead, the month of July will also feature a fan-favorite service to our families: Hang Tough is bringing back its annual School Supply Drive for the second year in a row. This Supply Drive will run from July 1st to the very end of the month and come together into one big ‘School Shopping Night’ for our families on August 2nd. Be sure to check back next Friday for more details on where our Supply Donation Boxes will be located around Tallahassee and how you can play a small, yet vital part in helping our hero families!
Interested in pitching a hand even more while having a little fun too? Hang Tough is proud to officially announce its Inaugural Adult Field Day, presented by Tally Mac Shack, to be held on the evening of August 9, 2019 on the FSU Intramural Fields. Our goal with this event is to put the FUN in fundraising and all the proceeds will benefit Hang Tough in its mission to better support and serve our hero families. Come join us for old fashioned field day fun full of activities such as tug-of-war, sponge races, and more! For more information on Adult Field Day, please visit our website at: http://hangtoughfoundation.org/engage/adult-field-day/
We are also still looking for local businesses to partner with us and serve as both General Sponsors and Field Day Station Sponsors. For more details on how you can help Hang Tough and sponsor Adult Field Day, please see our Sponsorship Package for the event: https://hangtoughfoundation.org/wp-content/uploads/2019/06/Adult-Field-Day-1.pdf
