VAV donates wheelchair to injured Marine
LAWRENCE — Marine Private James Crosby, 29, of Winthrop — who was seriously injured in Iraq — will be given a highly specialized all-terrain wheelchair from the Merrimack Valley-based group, Veterans Assisting Veterans, in a ceremony Sunday, Dec. 22 3 p.m. at the VFW Joseph L Mottolo Post, 4524 Garofola St., Revere.
The Action Track wheelchair for Crosby — which will give him mobility to navigate all sorts of hard surfaces including beaches, frozen lakes, shallow streams and snow — is made possible after VAV and Pentucket Medical Associates jointly raised more than $71,000 at a black-tie gala held at Salvatore’s in Lawrence last month.
In addition to the Action Track wheelchair for Pvt. Crosby, proceeds will go to help fund several other veteran’s outreach programs. For more information visit veteransassistingveterans.com.
