For two years now, the Scarlet Pear Casino Resort will host Spartan Alliance Weekend to improve the lives of injured veterans and their families.
The raising of the flag took place before a weekend packed with events takes place. Cycling events, fitness challenges, golf tournaments, and so much more will help veterans, firefighters, and first responders as therapy for disabilities and PTSD.
A warfighter gala will take place on Saturday where a Purple Heart recipient will receive an all-terrain wheelchair.
The entire weekend is about the camaraderie and brotherhood veterans share with one another, making sure no man is left behind. Spartan Alliance Program Coordinator Theresa Botts said, “It’s our passion because we see the need. We see what others go through. We see how they suffer. We do everything that we can to help build these relationships to where somebody always has somebody to call on.”
The Spartan Alliance and the Scarlet Pearl will collectively give away four wheelchairs total to veterans over the weekend.
