WWP Team Minnesota

History of Team Minnesota - WWP

 

Army Captain Matt Cavanaugh & Tom Cocchiarella, a USAF Vietnam Era Veteran, started WWP Team Minnesota in September 2008. Tom & Matt become good friends as old fashioned "Pen Pals" during Matt's two tours in Iraq during the first & third years of the war. Later, Matt had just visited a friend and NCO who was severely wounded by an explosion in 2006 and discovered the work that the Wounded Warrior Project was doing to help this Soldier and his family. WWP Team Minnesota was born, and in the past 5 years we have raised $245,000.00 in support of WWP efforts. With many more wounded since, and knowing the long term rehabilitation needs, we continue our quest to help our Wounded Warriors. 

In January of 2009, the St. Paul Winter Carnival was about to crown a new Royal Family and a "Vulcan Krewe", when Tom was introduced to Vulcanus Rex (Joe Vogel). Joe, being a Marine Veteran, asked his Krewe to 'Adopt WWP as their primary charity" and we have been working together as a team since! This unlikely team has come together to build awareness for WWP Programs & Services, as well as raise a significant amount of money for the WWP Programs to operate. 

We are very proud that our events have been put together with donated facilities; services, products, food, etc. so that 100% of the funds we collect are donated to WWP to help our most severely wounded and their families!
