KC Rally held for wounded warriors

KANSAS CITY, Mo. - Worth Harley Davidson held a ride and a rally to celebrate and help wounded soldiers.

The Warrior Appreciation Rally served as both a fundraiser and a celebration for veterans and wounded soldiers.

Tim Norton served in the Army for eight years before being shot in the leg in Iraq. He knows firsthand how important a support system is for returning soldiers.

"The old line, even a blind squirrel finds a nut. That's what happen to me when I found the Camp Hope guys and this event up here," Norton shared.

The money raised will go to the Wounded Warrior Project, the Cameron Veterans Home, and Camp Hope.

William White founded Camp Hope after his son was killed in Iraq in 2006.

"We're honoring our fallen by helping our wounded. We now we bring our wounded in and we teach them they can still get out and enjoy the outdoors," White said.

White will continue working with wounded soldiers for as long as it's needed; including those battling PTSD, post dramatic stress disorder.

"It doesn't matter what the injury is, they can come to Camp Hope. We do a lot more than just hunting and fishing," said White.

The Warrior Appreciation Rally raised more than $30,000 in its first three years for the Wounded Warrior Project and Camp Hope.
