Shadyside Fundraiser Aims to Help Wounded Veterans Get Outdoors
A fundraiser over the weekend will help wounded
veterans enjoy outdoor hobbies that they thought would be impossible.
Outside the Tiger Pub in Shadyside, volunteers for LEEK Hunting and
Mountain Preserve cooked hamburgers, hot dogs, and rotisserie
chicken to raise money to purchase track chairs. The
chairs are meant be used in the great outdoors by severely injured
service men and women at the Leek Hunting Preserve in Pennsylvania.
preserve is used to thank veterans for their service and provide
recreational programs such as hunting and fishing. LEEK is a completely
free, volunteer-run facility dedicated to offering therapeutic outdoor
programs for wounded veterans with all levels of disabilities.
