Match for a Marine

On Jan. 8, the Peters Township  Wrestling team will be hosting the second "Match for a Marine"  event in a dual meet against BP to honor an American hero.   All proceeds from the event, including admissions and concession sales, will be donated to a charitable organization that has been set-up by our local VFW to directly benefit Marine SGT. Doug Vitale.   Doug was a wrestler at Kiski and his wife is a graduate of Peters Twp.   Doug was seriously injured while on patrol in Afghanistan, losing both legs and suffering multiple strokes.   He is now in Peters Twp.  going through rehab. Tunnel to Towers Foundation and The Gary Sinese Foundation  is building a home for the young couple that will accommodate all of his needs. This brave young soldier will need assistance for the rest of his life.  

The Peters Twp. Dance Team, PTSD, VFW Post 764 and the Pittsburgh Leather Neck Detachment have rallied behind this special night.  The goal is to have 1000 people attend the wrestling  match and raise $5000 for this family.  Last yea, the event raised $29,000.
