HOW IT ALL BEGAN
In 2004, Colonel Rob Balzano became involved with the Pilot for a Day (P4D) Program at Andrews Air Force Base. Since that time, he has coordinated numerous events in support of this great program. What began as a small gathering and fundraising event of family and friends for the bi-annual Air Force vs Navy Football Game Tailgate, quickly grew into The Check-6 Foundation. With the incredible help of our Board of Directors, Board of Advisors, and many supporters, the foundation has assited hundreds of veterans in need, pay their bills, get medical attention, find jobs and so much more. We continue to provide an unforgettable experience to children battling serious illnesses (and their families) through our Pilot for a Day Program nationwide.
