A local charity brings together hospitalized veterans and former NFL players, Super Bowl champions, for a day of fun, fitness, comradery and, of course, football.

On Wednesday at the Newburgh Armory, Play for Your Freedom held a Wellness Workshop. The workshops get local veterans out of the hospital and use physical fitness mixed with positive support to create a healthy and memorable experience.

Play for Your Freedom is the brainchild of David Lionheart. His non-for-profit’s vision is to better the lives of veterans in the Hudson Valley.

Each month a Wellness Workshop is held in the Hudson Valley involving group exercise, flag football, and more.

Hudson Valley Post attended Play For Your Freedom's most recent "Wellness Workshop." The above video goes more depth about the organization, workshops, why NFL players are coming to the Hudson Valley to give back, and more. Plus, we learned about an upcoming event and how you can play, donate, or volunteer.
