Wounded Warrior Project

first_imgParticipating in our Democracy is more than about just voting nationally and locally on Tuesday, although that is a very good start. Take your patriotism to the next level by participating in a race that benefits our wounded troops. Soldiers coming home from war with physical and mental scars need all the help we can give them, and supporting races like the Wounded Warrior Project 8-K goes a long way. Not only do these events raise funds to bring wounded veterans back into society, but they boost morale across the board.Despite the current climatic unstableness in the Atlantic, fall is the perfect season for running. The cool climate, dry air, and gorgeous scenery make getting out on the road or trail that much more enjoyable. When you are also helping a great cause, running through the pain never hurt so good. The Wounded Warrior Project is one of the largest veterans support networks, and this weekend they are staging their 8K run in Franklin, Tenn. Race day registration is open, so feel free to sign up for the 8K or 1K fun run. If you don’t want to run, but are in the area, get out to the finish line and support runners and Wounded Warriors alike.View Larger Maplast_img read more

NBF Appoints Hughley New D’Tigress Coach

first_imgKida emphasised that since Vincent was not sacked because of poor results but that based on issues surrounding conflicting professional engagements, it was wise to replace him with a coach that will be readily available.“We needed to take a proactive step in the interest of the team who are preparing for the World Cup. We needed to fill the vacuum immediately and continue our preparation for Spain.“For many, parting ways with Vincent at this time was not a good decision, but it was a difficult decision we had to take in the overall and long-term interest of the team.”Otis who had previously led Mobile’s LeFlore High School, Alabama, USA to six state tournaments and one state title before getting hired as an assistant coach by the Sacramento Kings in the NBA will henceforth lead the D’Tigress team.The federation is optimistic that Hughley will bring his wealth of experience to bear on the team as they prepare for their World Cup campaign.“We still have about 50 days to train and get ready for the competition and we are confident that the time frame will be enough for any good coach to train and shape a team into a strong contender.”The American will be assisted by Peter Ahmedu and Shola Shomala.Paired in Group B alongside Argentina and Turkey, the current African champions will start their World Cup campaign against Australia on September 22.Share this:FacebookRedditTwitterPrintPinterestEmailWhatsAppSkypeLinkedInTumblrPocketTelegram Following the sack on Thursday of erstwhile senior women’s basketball team’s head coach, Sam Vincent, the Nigeria Basketball Federation has appointed Otis Hughley as an immediate replacement.The appointment of the former NBA Coach was finalised after the NBBF leadership approved his programme for the D’Tigress’ participation at the World Cup in Spain.NBBF President, Musa Kida, said the leadership of the federation settled for Hughley as it became apparent that he is the “most immediate available option.”last_img read more
