The Wounded Blue Partners With The Rugby Foundation to Support Our Frontline Personnel
Las Vegas, Nevada— May 1, 2020 — The Rugby Foundation (TRF) is proud to announce our newest strategic partnership with The Wounded Blue.
The Rugby Foundation (TRF) and The Wounded Blue (TWB) has strategically partnered on some near term initiatives that will be mutually beneficial for both of our missions. In the very near term, we will be collaborating on reusable and washable facemask for our frontline workers across the country – an effort to show our support for health and wellness who continue to make personal sacrifices daily, especially during this Covid-19 crisis.
The CEO and Co-founder of The Rugby Foundation, Phil Klevorick stated, ” This is a
very promising partnership with The Wounded Blue for many reasons but the most
important ones focus around the ability to support our law enforcement officers who
have been injured either physically or mentally while on the job. Given the current crisis
in the United States, it will be even more critical we maximize our limited resources for
the benefit of those who need them.”
Randy Sutton, Founder of The Wounded Blue stated “The Wounded Blue is proud to
forge an alliance with The Rugby Foundation to safeguard the physical and emotional
well-being of our Law Enforcement Community. Great things happen when
organizations work together for the good of others.’

annual Salute2Services Rugby Tournament in Las Vegas, Nevada October 29-31 which
supports all of our Uniformed Services components including LEOs, Fire, Military and
