BYU-Idaho Radio · Pickle for a Purpose and support local veterans

Nexus Mortgage Lending is partnering with Quick Response Force and Play It Again Sports to host a pickleball tournament with proceeds going toward Quick Response Force which is an organization that aims to help military veterans with whatever they may be struggling with. Their slogan is “Veterans helping veterans.” 


“They do a 24/7 suicide hotline for veterans … and they raise money to help out with yard work, and camping trips. Anything that the veterans can do together to get their minds off of some of the things they might have gone through,” said Logan Murri, a representative for Nexus Mortgage Lending. 


The event will start at 9 a.m. on Saturday, July 9 at Lincoln Park in Idaho Falls. The event will feature raffles, food trucks, and activities other than pickleball for the whole family. 


“We will have some cornhole and we may have some face painting, and they can participate in the fantastic raffle that we will have,” said Melissa another representative for Nexus Mortgage Lending. 


The tournament is split into two divisions, advanced and beginner. To enter each team of two players must sign up and pay $35.
