Hits 4 Heroes is a locally run, non-profit organization in conjunction with American Legion Post 54 dedicated to providing financial assistance to annually nominated Wounded Combat Veterans from Southern Maryland.
In 2012, Hits 4 Heroes was a two-day, wooden bat softball tournament with a goal of raising $5,000 for a wounded veteran from St. Mary's County. One tournament and more than $11,000 later, we knew we had something special. Since then, the organization has expanded to planning and fundraising efforts that span the entire year and involve volunteers, donors, and participants from across the country. To date, we have been able to raise over $150,000 for six wounded combat veterans who have become a part of our family, regardless of where they were born. With no limit in sight, we aim to continue to support those who have sacrificed so much to ensure our safety and freedom - in whatever capacity is needed.
