On Monday, April 30, the Caravan will visit with soldiers and family members of the 101st Airborne Division of the US Army at Fort Campbell, Ky. Mariota, Succop, Palmerl, Robinson, T-Rac, Titans cheerleaders and staff will be part of the stop, as they take the opportunity to thank our troops and their families for their great sacrifice.
On Friday, May 4, the Caravan heads out to Memphis for a stop closed to the general public at the American Cancer Society Hope Lodge. Smith, Woods and Jackson will be on-site to help host a dinner for patients, their caregivers and ACS staff and volunteers.
Titans Caravan began in 1998 as a small effort to spread goodwill through the region. Today, nine full-time staffers travel with Titans players and T-Rac through the Mid-South on a specially-decorated motor coach. Since 1998, the Caravan has made over 800 stops and allowed the team to interact directly with an estimated audience well in excess of 250,000 fans.
