The Newsboys “Love Riot Tour” Nashville show at the Curb Event Center Friday night (Oct. 28) served as a benefit for the Guardian for Heroes Foundation. Established by late U.S. Navy SEAL and “American Sniper” Chris Kyle, the organization assists combat veterans transitioning to post-military life. During the evening, Guardian for Heroes’ Jeff Kyle, brother of Chris Kyle, spoke about the foundation’s mission and purpose. BeastMode for the Brave endurance athlete George Chmiel also joined Kyle onstage to share about his run across America to raise awareness about the serious issues veterans face upon returning home from the battlefield. Chmiel is currently on track to run more than 3,000 miles in 60 days.
