Pittsburgh, PA (PRWEB) August 07, 2014
MyWay Mobile Storage is pleased to have joined with Cintas First Aid & Safety to support the 2014 Cornhole Classic to raise funds for the Wounded Warrior Project. Held at the Robert Morris University Island Sports Center, 40 cornhole teams competed for bragging rights and the $300 first place prize. Cornhole boards were built for the event by the Carpenters Joint Apprentice Training Committee (JATC) with lumber donated by 84 Lumber. Other event sponsors included, RMU Island Sports Center, Street City Cornhole and Durable Documents.
The event raised more than $6,000 for the Wounded Warrior Project. The Wounded Warrior Project helps injured soldiers returning home from conflicts around the world. More soldiers survive their injuries than in the past thanks to better body armor and better medicine, but that means that the number of service men and women returning home with physical or mental injuries is greater.
“I’m so glad we could do something to help them help our brave warriors,” said event organizer, Jeff Hancher, Cintas Sales Manager. “These brave individuals and their families need our support now more than ever.” Hancher continued, “Wounded Warrior Project has a vision is to foster the most successful well-adjusted generation of wounded service members in our nation's history. We applaud that vision, and trust that the money raised by Pittsburgers at this event will be put to good use. As the Wounded Warrior Project puts it, ‘it’s not about the war, it’s about the warrior.’”
Ed Sickmund, MyWay Mobile Storage Market Owner said, “MyWay is happy to be able to give something back to these warriors and their families who have given so much to our country. I was so proud to join Jeff Hancher when he presented the check to Pittsburgh’s local Wounded Warrior Project staff.
“Fundraisers like this cornhole tournament help the Wounded Warrior Project expand and improve our programs for wounded warriors returning home to the Pittsburgh area,” said Melaine Huber, of Wounded Warriors Project. “Every dollar raised helps us continue uniquely structured programs to nurture the mind and body, and encourage economic empowerment and engagement. Everyone’s recovery process is different. We help them find a program that fits them and their family’s needs,” Huber continued, “We want warriors to remember, you are not alone in this journey. We are here to support you as you define your new normal.” More information about the Wounded Warrior Project is available online at http://www.woundedwarriorproject.org.
