Veterans Appreciation Day, High Ridge Elks, High Ridge, MO
Support the Citizen Solder who gave his all. For some it was Service, for others it was more personal. This fund-raiser helps the Jefferson Barracks Veterans Wheelchair Sports Team with funds to help off-set their travel expenses to the Games as the Veterans Administration does not cover travel and lodging expenses, these are paid for by the Athlete. The Games are a multi-event sports and rehabilitation program for military service veterans who use wheelchairs for sports competition due to spinal cord injuries, amputations or certain neurological problems. Attracting more than 500 athletes each year, the National Veterans Wheelchair Games is the largest annual wheelchair sports event in the world.
In the past thirteen years lodge 2455 has raised $90.000. Come out and help the High Ridge Elks Lodge 2455 and the 6th Corps Living History Group St Louis, MO along with the Military Vehicle Preservation Association and others in supporting our Nation’s most precious asset, Our Veterans!
Open to the public 12 noon - 5pm.
