WWP programs and services assist injured veterans with mental health, physical health and wellness, career and benefits counseling, connecting warriors with one another and their communities, and long-term care for the most seriously wounded. Generous donors make it possible for wounded warriors to take part in connection activities and benefit from program resources at no cost to them.

"In many ways, the communities where our warriors live and work can have a significant lasting impact on their recoveries," said Gary Corless, WWP chief development officer. "Community members interact with these injured veterans daily and see their needs. That gives them a chance to understand some of the challenges warriors face when returning to civilian life, but also where they can support those Wounded Warrior Project serves. Events like this can make all the difference; we're extremely grateful for the past generosity of the Pittsburgh community. We're excited about this year's event, with the community once again helping fuel Wounded Warrior Project's mission to honor and empower Wounded Warriors."
