Fallen Heroes Football Classic

Local people say thanks and raise money for veterans.
ALTOONA - Some local military heroes got a chance to show off their skills on the gridiron Saturday in Altoona.
 
The 4th annual Fallen Heroes Football Classic pitted members from the 56th Striker Brigade against one another. The event is a way to say thanks, and also a fundraiser for the Specialist Chad Edmundson Memorial Foundation. The Williamsburg native was killed in Iraq in 2009. The foundation helps military members and their families with whatever needs they have.
 
“We really like to support the military and their cause. These guys put their lives on the line, they really give a lot for our country and this is just our way of saying thank you to them and giving back," Specialist Chad Edmundson Memorial Foundation Historian Jessica Leader says.
