The November 7 swim meet between Susquehanna University and Landmark Conference rival The Catholic University of America will be a special one, not just because it is a conference matchup but also because of the events surrounding the meet outside the pool.
Susquehanna senior swimmer Danny Csakai, a member of the campus ROTC program, has helped arrange for the meet to benefit the Wounded Warrior Project.
"Our team is passionate about giving back to our nation's service members – the few who fight to protect the freedom of this great country," Csakai said. "Often times many of these inspiring individuals come home with wounds you can and can't see, like a missing limb, combat stress, or depression. Because they've risked everything for us, I'm committed to raising awareness and funds for these wounded service members and their caregivers."
The organization's mission is to honor and empower Wounded Warriors. Wounded Warrior Project® (WWP) has a big goal: to foster the most successful, well-adjusted generation of wounded service members in our nation's history. WWP offers 20 holistic programs to wounded service members and their caregivers completely free of charge and 100 percent of the funds raised through the this event go directly to Wounded Warrior Project to help fuel these programs.
Csakai and the entire Susquehanna swimming program are asking for your support. For more information and to donate to the cause, please click here.
