Delaware Co. residents walk for wounded warriors

Saturday, May 21, 2011

Thousands turned out on a sunny Saturday for a Walk for the Wounded event at Rosetree Park in Media, Delaware County.

The fundraiser benefits wounded soldiers and their families, and remember those who lost their lives, like Army Staff Sergeant Joseph Kane, who was killed by an IED in Iraq in 2006.

The Warriors Watch Riders escorted 12-wounded warriors two mile during the walk.

And the Phillie Phanatic was also there to help Delaware County residents lend a helping hand to their wounded warriors.
