Wounded warrior to receive funds to compete in Tough Mudder event

Amarillo, TX - The Amarillo Marine Corps League will present a wounded warrior with a check for $6,000 Monday.

The check presentation will be at 5pm at the Texas Panhandle War Memorial.

The recipient, Joe Chris Rodriguez, is a disabled veteran with a spinal cord injury who also has a love of competition.

Rodriguez plans to use the money to travel to compete in the Tough Mudder event next month, despite his disability.

He will be assisted by therapists, friends, and family in overcoming the challenge.

To donate funds to help cover Rodriguez's expenses or get more information, anyone can contact Joe Chris Rodriguez at 806-683-6978 or Punshchamp@live.com.

After covering expenses, all proceeds will go to the Wounded Warriors Project.
