“Through adversity we find our heroes...” – Steve Gleason
Team Gleason & Wounded Warriors present a special Super Bowl Week charity flag football game Wednesday in New Orleans at Isidore Newman School.
On Wednesday evening, January 30, 2013, a team of current and former New Orleans Saints and NFL players (“Team Gleason”) will take on a team of veterans from the US Army and US Marine Corps, who were wounded in the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan (officially known as the “Wounded Warrior Amputee Softball Team”) in a flag football game fundraiser.
The event’s proceeds will benefit Steve Gleason’s foundation and these brave American military heroes.
