In June, Helping a Hero hosted the Wounded Hero Challenge at BlackHorse Golf Club. The Challenge helped to raise much needed funds — all while aiming to lift spirits during these uncertain and often difficult times of the COVID-19 pandemic. 

The shotgun start went off at 1 PM on June 24, 2020 at the Wounded Hero Challenge, hosted by nonprofit organization, Helping a Hero.  Supporters and spectators enthusiastically joined in for a game of golf — something that has felt next to impossible since COVID-19 took over the world.  But this challenge, as real as it may have felt, was nothing compared to the daily struggles faced by a wounded warrior.

Our United States military members and veterans have put their lives on the line for our freedom.  Many of these courageous, kind and brave men and women have paid the price for that freedom — some more than others.  That’s why Helping a Hero does their part to support and empower veterans whose wounds have led to life-changing disabilities and a multitude of setbacks.  The Wounded Hero Challenge is just one of many great efforts hosted by the initiative that gets the community involved to rally behind our brave veterans.  Dean Buescher is a longtime supporter of Helping a Hero, as he believes 100% in the nonprofit’s message.
