On Saturday, the Boston College football team will show their support for the Wounded Warrior Project by wearing American flag-based jerseys along with ACC opponent Maryland. Under Armour, a major supporter of the Wounded Warrior Project, sponsors both teams. The Wounded Warrior Project’s purpose is “to raise awareness and enlist the public’s aid for the needs of injured service members.” The organization looks to re-engage this generation of wounded soldiers back in society, and provide them with the resources and programs to become well-adjusted in their daily lives.
The Heights would like to commend Under Armour’s effort in promoting this cause, and make the student body aware of the purpose behind these uniforms. This is a great cause that unites BC’s focus on service within the athletic program. The Heights also encourages the student body to recognize the significance of this game, and support the mission of the Wounded Warrior Project.
