NFL Players are challenging the Wounded Warrior Amputee Softball Team to a game of softball on June 1st, 2013 in Bowie, Maryland to promote Amputee Awareness and raise funds for Amputee Organizations.
All proceeds will go directly to the charities to help these heroes and their families improve their lives.
NFL Players scheduled to attend include: Co Hosts: Josh Morgan of the Washington Redskins and Desean Jackson of the Philadelphia Eagles.
Torrey Smith, Fred Davis, Darrell Young, Tavon Wilson, Marvin Austin, Brett Lockett, Gary “Flea” Harrell, EJ Biggers, Chris Wilson, Arrelious Benn, Robert Quinn, Richard Marshall.
This event is especially timely and will also promote awareness of the victims of the Boston bombing who now face the same challenges as the wounded warriors who lost limbs in combat.
The Boston bombing amputees will face the same challenges. Military men and women with complicated limb loss injuries like IED and roadside bombs need special care to get the right fit for prosthetic devices. The right fit is crucial to the quality of life that these veterans will live.
