No Excuses Clinic for Local Veterans

SARATOGA COUNTY — “Every day can be Veteran’s Day with veterans, community members, and companies working together.”

That is the slogan for The Learning League and Project Transition’s No Excuses Clinic, which is a clinic designed to help a broad spectrum of people, from the morbidly obese to autistic people, to veterans trying to get back on their feet. At the No Excuses Clinic, taking place starting in January 2018 at the Hudson Valley Community College in Troy, veterans will participate in sporting events tailored to their skills.

“It will not take an act of Congress to help returning veterans overcome PTSD and spinal cord injuries. It will take an act of kindness from local employers and the sports therapies of Second Chance Sports,” said Billy Yaiser, founder of The Learning League and Second Chance Sports.

“Given the tools and opportunity, returning vets and active military families can do more for themselves than most doctors or insurance plans can. We need companies and community members to simply sponsor a family for as little as $35 per week,” said the official statement.

For companies looking to sponsor, The Learning League will tailor a plan that works best for you.

“Let’s start this New Year by working together to help veterans and active duty families reclaim their lives. In addition, you can jumpstart your own health and wellness and thank our veterans and active military and their families every day for their service by your sponsorship,” the official press release stated.

For more information, visit www.secondchancesports.org or call 518-491-0556.

To sponsor, make the check payable to:

The Learning League, P.O. Box 3031 Ballston Ave., Saratoga Springs, NY 12866.
