On March 6, 2019 co-founder of Wounded Warrior Support Foundation Mr. Paata Patiashvili held a meeting with the leadership of Challenged Athletes Foundation (US charity organization) Ms. Virginia Tinley, Mr. Nico Marcolongo and Mr. Travis Ricks in San Diego, California. Challenged Athletes Foundation donated two sitting basketball wheelchairs for wounded soldiers of Georgian Defense Forces.
Meanwhile, Wounded Soldiers of Georgian Defense Forces had a successful performance at Marine Corps Trials in San Diego, California. 38 golden medals won by the Georgian team serves as a proof for it. One of these golden medals was won by sitting basketball team against Wounded Warrior Battalion – West Team 1.
The sitting basketball wheelchairs donated to Wounded Soldiers of Georgian Defense Forces is indeed timely and valuable gift for the Georgian sitting basketball team to continue its future successful performance.
More can be learned about another successful participation of Wounded Soldiers of Georgian Armed Forces in California, on official web site of Ministry of Defence of Georgia.
