When someone stands up for us, and they need our help later, should we support them? Think of the men and women in our military, who stand up for America. If they return home injured, shouldnâ€™t we stand up for them?
The answer to both questions is, â€œOf course we should.â€
Supporting Our Wounded Warriors
We were invited by the Fellowship of Christian Athletes to sponsor a special softball game between the FCA All-Stars and the Wounded Warriors, in Fort Worth, Texas on September 29th. We are furnishing a special shoe for the game.
Here is the text of a recent news release:
â€œRingor is honored to be a part of the God and Country Games between the FCA Softball All-Stars and the Wounded Warriors Amputee Softball Teamâ€, said Kirk Ihlenburg, CEO of Ringor. â€œWhat greater cause is there to support than God and Country? Our great country was founded on the principles of God, and has been defended and represented by these great athletes.â€
â€œRingor is a company with a strong moral compass. Our mission is to build the best footwear in softball to help the most dedicated athletes achieve their dreams,â€ said Mr. Ihlenburg. â€œThe Wounded Warriors and the FCA All-Stars are the best examples of overcoming challenges to achieve uncommon success. They are an inspiration to watch as they live out their missions.â€
Why It Matters
FCA is the largest Christian sports organization in the world, touching millions of lives each year. Our sponsorship of the Fellowship of Christian Athletes is a small way we can support their mission. By supporting the God and Country Games, we can also give back to those who have given so much for us. The Wounded Warriors are serious players. Although they are amputees, each player steps onto the field with all their heart and all their strength. They are a worthy opponent to the FCA All-Stars.
