ResortQuest sponsors Chris Kyle Frog Foundation

Special to The Log

Wyndham Vacation Rentals recently announced that its ResortQuest brand will sponsor several retreats in 2017 aimed at reconnecting military and first responders with their spouses.

Revitalization Retreats are the signature program of the Chris Kyle Frog Foundation (CKFF), a national non-profit organization based in Texas that’s dedicated to providing experiences for military veterans to help keep their marriages and families connected and thriving. Wyndham Vacation Rentals has supported CKFF's Revitalization Retreats since the program’s launch in 2015.

This year’s partnership confirms Wyndham's continued commitment to honoring those who serve by offering them a best-in-class experience on Northwest Florida's famed beaches.

“We are honored to partner with the Chris Kyle Frog Foundation by providing accommodations for military and first responders during a very important time in their lives,” said Lino Maldonado, vice president of Wyndham Vacation Rentals. “The foundation's focus on strengthening the family unit for those who have experienced hardships due to their line of work really resonates with us. A large portion of our business operates along the Panhandle in areas with a high military presence. Most of our staff is personally connected to these everyday heroes, and we look forward to thanking them with great experiences along Northwest Florida.”

The foundation’s namesake Chris Kyle authored the highly acclaimed memoir "American Sniper" documenting his life serving as a Navy SEAL sniper. His wife Taya Kyle is CKFF’s executive director and founded the organization in 2014 to honor Chris’s legacy by addressing the challenges that she and Chris experienced during his time in service.

"If there is the true meaning of revitalization, it is opening the curtains and seeing Northwest Florida's beautiful white sand beaches. We know our military and first responder couples will enjoy their opportunity to reconnect while we look after everything for them,” Taya said.
