The Zone Elite Performance Center, with the help of a local U11 travel baseball team, is hosting a hit-a-thon to raise money for the Wounded Warrior Project. The event is scheduled for March 5 from 6 p.m. to 7:30 p.m. at The Zone facilities on N. Evans St. located in the newly renovated Airport Bowl building.

General Manager Jeff Jennings has organized the event where every pitch hit by local baseball players raises money for a charity near and dear to Jennings’ heart.

“I’m a retired Army veteran,” he said. “I’m a disabled vet from Iraq. The Wounded Warrior Project is something that I really support.”

Having seen the benefits of the organization with men he knew in Iraq, Jennings was happy to set up the event. He’s pleased The Zone can provide an opportunity for local baseball players to give back to the community.

“We’re donating the time and the facilities for them to go ahead and do this,” said Jennings. “Anybody can show up and watch local kids support a charity.”

Those wishing to support the young batters and the Wounded Warrior Project can donate money for the event. Jennings said checks should be made out to Wounded Warrior Project.

Donations can be made before the event, during the hit-a-thon, or anytime after the activity.

The purpose of the Wounded Warrior Project, according to the non-profit organization’s website, is “to raise awareness and enlist the public’s aid for the needs of injured service members; to help injured service members aid and assist each other; and to provide unique, direct programs and services to meet the needs of injured service members.”

The goal of the organization is to assist veteran’s in need to improve mind, body, find economic empowerment and be engaged with other vets and their communities. The website, provides a variety of information for veterans and those wishing to support vets.
