UNTUCKit and NASCAR's Chase Elliott Team Up to Benefit VFW

UNTUCKit and the Chase Elliott Foundation to donate to the VFW’s Help A Hero Scholarship and the Intrepid Fallen Heroes Fund

NEW YORK – UNTUCKit, one of the fastest-growing retail brands in the United States, announced today the launch of the Chase Elliott Limited-Edition Made in America Shirt to support military service members and veterans. Crafted in North Carolina, the shirt features Chase’s No. 9 car mark stitched into the sail of a signature UNTUCKit button-down and will be available beginning today for $109 at UNTUCKit.com/ChaseElliott.

Chase ElliottThe launch of UNTUCKit’s Chase Elliott Limited-Edition Made in America Shirt coincides with the industry-wide launch of the NASCAR Salutes campaign from Memorial Day through Independence Day that honors the fallen, first responders, members of the military, and their families.

In honor of the shirt’s launch, UNTUCKit is making a donation to the VFW® “SportClips’s® Help A Hero Scholarship” which The Chase Elliott Foundation will match. The Foundation is also making a separate donation to the Intrepid Fallen Heroes Fund.

"This has been a shared passion project for Chase Elliott and UNTUCKit that began the moment we started working together," said UNTUCKit CEO and Co-founder Aaron Sanandres. "UNTUCKit has always supported the military and its veterans, so we're excited to find another way to honor them through this limited-edition shirt with Chase."

“I’ve enjoyed working with UNTUCKit over the last year, so I jumped at the chance to create a great product for a worthy cause with them,” said 23-year-old Elliott, a four-time race winner on the NASCAR Cup Series circuit and reigning Most Popular Driver award recipient. “I have a lot of respect for people who dedicate their lives to causes greater than themselves and, as someone with family members who have served in the military, I’m excited to offer a product and donation in their honor.”

The VFW’s “Sport Clips Help A Hero Scholarship” program provides scholarships to support service members and veterans as they work to get the education and training needed to begin the next chapter in their lives. The Intrepid Fallen Heroes Fund builds critical care centers for treating United States military personnel suffering the effects of traumatic brain injury and post-traumatic stress.

ABOUT INTREPID FALLEN HEROES FUND
The Intrepid Fallen Heroes Fund is a leader in supporting the men and women of the United States armed forces and their families. Established in 2000, IFHF has provided over $200
million in support for the families of military personnel lost in service to our nation, and for severely wounded service members and their families. Today IFHF is leading efforts to help service members suffering the terrible effects of traumatic brain injury (TBI). TBI afflicts hundreds of thousands of men and women who have selflessly served in defense of our nation. To help address this urgent need, the Intrepid Fallen Heroes Fund is building a series of ten specially-designed treatment facilities, called Intrepid Spirit Centers, at military bases around the nation. Within these centers, service members receive the most advanced and proven care to address the complex symptoms of TBI, with the goal of returning these men and women to their duties in the armed forces. Seven Intrepid Spirit Centers are already open and serving America’s brave service members, and the care provided has allowed more than 90% of patients to continue their service in the armed forces. Construction on the eighth Center began in May 2019. For more information about this effort, visit FallenHeroesFund.org.
