PITTSBURGH (KDKA) – A 24-hour film crew raises money for Team Foster, a charity that honors the service and sacrifice of Captain Erick Foster, an Oil City alum and Duquesne who died fighting in Iraq.
The group raises money to provide service dogs for injured and disabled veterans free of charge.
“PTSD and brain injuries are typical wounds of warfare after 9/11. We literally have hundreds of thousands of men and women suffering from these challenges. As a result, we lose over 20 veterans and service staff to suicide every day, and we know these dogs literally save lives, ”said Nick Liermann, Executive Director of Team Foster.
Team Foster hopes to raise $ 50,000 by the end of the 24-hour journey.
The group intends to double this amount next year.
