The Spine Project hosts event to support services for veterans
The Spine Project’s second annual cornhole tournament drew a crowd to Green Bay Distillery.
“We’ve doubled in size from last year,” said Dr. Julie Wyss, one of the founders of The Spine Project.
About 40 teams participated the tournament.
“All the proceeds that are raised from this event supports veterans in our community for free or reduced fees within our office for care,” said Wyss.
Wyss and her husband Dr. Skip Wyss run a chiropractic clinic in Green Bay. They got The Spine Project registered as a non-profit three years ago, but they’ve been donating their services to veterans and their families far longer.
“For ten years we’ve officially been just, when soldiers would show up at our office we’d just take care of them. It feels that that’s the little part we can do to give back for their service,” said Wyss.
Wyss believes their service allows more choices apart from the types of treatments VA programs can provide.
“This gives the veterans an option, a natural approach, to get them back to health and to get them to actually start to enjoy their lives again with their families,” said Wyss.
