The Paralyzed Veterans Outdoor Heritage Fund provides our seriously injured heroes opportunities to enrich their lives through adaptive sports and recreational activities. Some of these recreational activities include hunting and fishing. Retired Major General Randy West was on hand to accept this $50,000 grant which will go towards fulfilling new initiatives within the organization, and expressed his gratitude on behalf of the Paralyzed Veterans of America. This grant will provide Paralyzed Veterans Outdoor Heritage Fund the opportunity to plan new upcoming trips and initiatives for our heroes.

WorldCause Foundation also provided Henry Ford Men's Health Systems with a grant valued at $ 25,000 and American Legion Ford Veterans Motor Post 173 with a $10,000 grant. Henry Ford Men's Health System is a national leader in patient care, research, and education with a strong commitment to the advancement of men's health issues. Its Vattikuti Urology Institute, a worldwide leader in developing advanced treatments for prostate cancer and other urologic disease, is a vital cornerstone of that ongoing commitment.

Representatives from both Henry Ford Men's Health Systems and American Legion Post 173 were also on hand to participate in the event, and accept these grants from WorldCause Foundation. The grant provided to Henry Ford Men's Health System will provide the organization with an opportunity to continue important research in the field of Urology.

Along with providing these grants, WorldCause Foundation was also on hand to award Timothy Millard of Jacksonville Beach, FL with the 2 Mustangs he won as a result of his donation.
