San Mateo, CA (PRWEB) February 03, 2016
Big games come and go, but only one will showcase the bravery and perseverance of those who have sacrificed so much for our country. CereScan, a nationally recognized brain diagnostics and technology company, will join NFL alumni and celebrities as a key sponsor of The Wounded Warrior Amputee Football Team (WWAFT) vs. NFL Stars Flag Football Game on February 6, 2016.
The event, scheduled to kick off at 12 p.m. on Super Bowl Saturday at the College of San Mateo (CSM), is a key part of the festivities leading up to Super Bowl 50. The WWAFT game will match up veterans who have lost limbs in Afghanistan or Iraq with more than 40 NFL Alumni. The event will raise awareness for amputee veterans and active duty soldiers, while also giving the veterans the opportunity to showcase their athletic talents. Nowhere else in the Bay Area during Super Bowl week will you experience such a moving, heartfelt game than at CSM’s College Heights Stadium.
“CereScan is honored to support such a worthy event. It’s now our turn to serve the brave men and women who have sacrificed so much for our freedom,” said John Kelley, Chairman and CEO of CereScan Corp.
It’s easy to get excited about the NFL greats and celebrities that will take to the field. Pittsburgh Steelers four-time Super Bowl champion and Vietnam Veteran, Rocky Bleier, co-hosts the game with CSM and Niner’s alum, Bill Ring. In fact, the San Francisco Forty-Niners will be well represented throughout the game. Home team champions include Dan Bunz, Derrick Deese, Chris Draft, William Floyd, Bill Romanowski, Dana Stubblefield, and Spencer Tillman, while former Los Angeles Raider, Bob Golic, brings a bit of a rivalry to the field.
Snoop Dogg and alumni from the Broncos, Browns, Colts, Eagles, Falcons, Rams, Packers, Patriots, and more will play alongside our local heroes. But, the moment of inspiration comes when the group of veterans, all amputees, face-off at the 50-yard line. These modern-day warriors will defend their team as bravely as they defended our country in combat.
