Middle School Students "Kick In" Funds To Help Disabled Veterans

Posted: Updated:

Around 80 Windsor Middle School students participated in the annual kickball tournament to raise funds for a good cause. The two organizations the students chose to donate to this year are the Wounded Warrior Project and Range of Motion Project (ROMP), which works to make prosthetics more readily available.

"Every year our home room group has a charge to take on a community service project and this is the fourth year that we started this tournament as something fun for the kids to do," says Jason Dewey, a teacher at Windsor Middle School.

Nine teams competed, each raising funds for the two causes. Students say they look forward to the event each year.

"We get to come here and play and they get money for it, so it's good. Good thing," says Austin Agati, a Windsor 7th grader.

Last year, the tournament raised $550. The funds from this year's team entries and concessions will be added up and divided between the two organizations.
