As Brantley explains in the video here, “One Hell of an Amen” was inspired by Jonathan Lootens and Kory Potts, and their courageous fight.
The wall on Bring-it-on.orgis a memorial to all those who have fought the good fight, be it with cancer or for our country’s freedom, and are still fighting. These two charities, The Kory Potts Foundation and TAPS, have been chosen by the families of Jonathan and Kory, and all proceeds will be divided equally between them.
BG says, “Thank you for your support, and never forget what it means to #BGBRINGITON…”
The Tragedy Assistance Program for Survivors (TAPS) offers compassionate care to all those grieving the death of a loved one serving in our Armed Forces. Since 1994, TAPS has provided comfort and hope through a national peer support network and connection to grief resources, 24 hours a day, seven days a week at no cost to surviving families and loved ones.
The Kory Potts Memorial Scholarship is given in memory of my brother, Kory Potts, each year to a student athlete that we feel best exemplifies the qualities of a leader that Kory so greatly displayed. You see, Kory wasn’t the most talented athlete, nor the valedictorian – but his drive, motivation, and heart set him apart from the field! For those of you that don’t know, Kory graduated from Jefferson in 2005, attended Shorter College in Rome, and then began working on our family cattle farm. In May of 2011, at the age of 23, we lost Kory to leukemia. Through all of his trials in the hospital fighting that awful disease, Kory never lost hope, never quit fighting, and never felt sorry for himself. He took it on just like he took everything else on: with character, determination, and a SMILE that lit up the world.
