On May 16, 2015, VETSports, Inc., a pro bono client of Locke Lord, held its annual fund raiser, the “Wounded Warrior Athlete Gala,” and recognized Locke Lord and attorney Glenn Pudelka in the Firm's Boston office for his pro bono work on behalf of VETSports. Over the past year, Locke Lord has provided employment law advice to VETSports and helped it obtain trademarks. VETSports is a Washington, D.C.-based non-profit that raises money and organizes sporting events around the country for young veterans with the mission of getting “wounded warriors” re-integrated into their local communities and engaged with their fellow veterans in a fun, competitive environment.
CNN recently spotlighted VETSports and how sports can help veterans heal the physical and emotional scars of war in a video. For more information on VETSports, visit their website at www.vetsports.org.
