Stryker Orthopaedics To Honor Veteran With Donation Of Fourth Service Dog With K9s For Warriors At Charles Schwab Cup Championship
Date:11/8/2016

MAHWAH, N.J., Nov. 8, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- This week, Stryker Orthopaedics will wrap up its third year as the Official Joint Replacement Products of the PGA TOUR and PGA TOUR Champions® at the Charles Schwab Cup Championship in Scottsdale, AZ.  This weekend marks the eleventh tournament where the brand engaged with consumers and activated on-site with the "Stryker Mobility Zone" – a destination designed to educate golf fans on the importance of joint health and mobility. In honor of the company's final stop of the year and to pay homage to its ongoing commitment to our nation's military, Stryker will make its fourth K9s for Warriors donation this Friday, on Veteran's Day at 11:00 AM MT in the Birdies for the Brave Patriots' Outpost located on the 18th fairway at Desert Mountain's Cochise Course.

Earlier this year Stryker announced a collaboration with K9s For Warriors, a nonprofit organization dedicated to providing service canines to military veterans suffering from Post-Traumatic Stress Disability, traumatic brain injury or other trauma as a result of military service post 9/11. As one of many activities dedicated to the military during Charles Schwab Cup, Stryker will host a special ceremony to present one veteran hero with a sponsored service dog.  Over the course of the year, Stryker has presented three other service dogs to military veterans across the country, in addition to making a donation to the organization for every Stryker hat purchased at the Stryker Mobility Zone.

"I'm very proud of the relationship Stryker has developed with the PGA TOUR over the years, combining our mission to educate people about joint health with our commitment to honoring our military," said Bill Huffnagle, President, Stryker's Reconstructive Division.  "We are excited for next year and are looking forward to seeing the relationship continue to evolve."

Additionally, fans attending the tournament are encouraged to stop by the Stryker Mobility Zone to participate in the Stryker Challenge, a series of golf-inspired activities related to joint health and mobility. While at the Stryker Mobility Zone, fans can learn more about hip and knee pain treatment options, and how they can enter for a chance to win a trip for two to TPC® Sawgrass to play alongside former PLAYERS Championship winners and Stryker ambassadors, Fred Funk and Hal Sutton.1,2
