Since May 6, members of "Stand to Honor" were perched atop large wooden crates at Victory Park, vowing to remain there until they reach their goal.
The latest news from around North Texas.
The group wanted to raise $1 million to fund 200 scholarships for children and families of fall soldiers. The goal was reached Tuesday night.
It took 11 days, taking turns in shifts, standing on the crates around the clock.
"The DFW community has been unbelievable, people coming out standing at all hours of the night, just showing up, veterans, police officers, volunteers, just saying 'y'all take a break, we want to stand in the gaps' so it's been amazing," said Gus Antos.
Most of the people who stood wanted to express their gratitude and deep appreciation for the men and women who have made the ultimate sacrifice.
All of the money will be donated to an organization called Folds of Honor, which provides scholarships to the children of fallen soldiers.
