GRAND CHUTE, WI - The Wounded Warriors Amputee Softball Team will play a pair of games at Neuroscience Group Field at Fox Cities Stadium on Sunday, September 3. The contests, presented by Scheels, will raise money to send young amputee children to a life changing camp, fund important amputee related medical research, provide medical equipment to veterans, and allow America's favorite team to compete, inspire and educate children, veterans and families all around the country.
The Wounded Warrior Amputee Softball Team™ (WWAST) is a 501(c)(3) public charity whose mission is to inspire and educate others while enhancing the health and welfare of Wounded Warrior Amputees. They are not affiliated with other Wounded Warriors charities. Since the inception of the Wounded Warrior Amputee Softball Team, over 85% of their donations have supported programs helping Wounded Warrior Amputees, amputee children, and medical research.
The WWAST is comprised of young, competitive, athletic veterans and active duty soldiers who have lost limbs. The team includes individuals with a variety of amputations - of the arm, above knee, below knee, bilateral below knee, and foot. Their goal is to support and honor our soldiers and veterans sacrifices, and to show other amputees and everyone who sees or hears about us that life without a limb is limitless.
"We look forward to hosting the Wounded Warrior Amputee Softball Team at the ballpark," said Aaron Hahn, Vice President of the Timber Rattlers. "This is going to be a great event for the community and our fans."
The first game on September 3 is a seven-inning game between the WWAST and Screwballs Bar. It will start at 10:30am. The second game of the doubleheader will be a seven-inning game that pits the WWAST against a team of area celebrities, including former Green Bay Packers Bill Schroeder and Chris Samp; former Milwaukee Brewers Don August, Larry Hisle, and Paul Wagner; FOX 11 sports reporters Josh Moser and Dylan Scott; Super Bowl Champion and Shiocton native Clint Kriewaldt; and former MLB pitcher and Milwaukee native Jack Taschner.
The WWAST players will sign autographs after the second game on September 3.
Fans can meet the players during an appearance at Scheels in the Fox River Mall on September 2nd from 12-3pm.
