The Hilltopper Football Team will go the extra mile Friday to raise funds for its annual Wounded Warriors Project.
Los Alamos High School alumni Cory Geyer enjoys a challenge and is finding one, as he attends the US Coast Guard Academy. He said he is thrilled to see his Toppers carry on the tradition of the Wounded Warrior fundraiser.
“I don’t think there is a more worthy cause out there,” Geyer said. “Those men and women put their bodies and lives on the line without hesitation not only to protect the freedoms we all enjoy but to represent the principles we stand for.”
Geyer is proud of the Toppers and their commitment to enable servicemen and women to take care of themselves and their families, he said. His football and wrestling families prepared him well for this new chapter of his life, but he’s able to keep in touch through local media.
If you can’t attend the game, feel free to visit the wounded warrior website to contribute at www.woundedwarriorproject.org.
The Wounded Warrior Project celebrates 10 years in 2014 with the motto, “A decade of service, a lifetime of commitment.”
