The Wounded Warrior Amputee Softball Team™ (WWAST) is a 501(c)(3) public charity whose mission is to inspire and educate others while enhancing the health and welfare of Wounded Warrior Amputees. Recognizing the positive impact WWAST players have on children with amputations or missing limbs, we created a softball camp for such children where WWAST players serve as the coaches and mentors. Twenty terrific kids attended our inaugural Kids Camp in Orlando, FL in June of 2013. Kids Camp is an annual WWAST event as we continue our mission to educate and inspire these children who face many of the same challenges as our WWAST players. We believe it is a win for the kids, and a win for the WWAST players who have already served their country, and who continue to serve in this important way.
The video to the right will show the amazing power of putting Wounded Warrior Amputees on a field with children who are also amputees or missing a limb:
