WASHINGTON, D.C. -Monumental Sports & Entertainment Foundation and Telos Corporation joined forces this past November for the inaugural Washington Wizards Courage Program. Hats with the word “Courage” written in the Wizards’ wordmark were sold with 100 percent of the proceeds benefiting Tragedy Assistance Program for Survivors.

TAPS is a nonprofit organization that provides ongoing emotional help, hope and healing to all who are grieving the death of a loved one in military service to America, regardless of their relationship to the deceased, geography or circumstance of the death. TAPS offers comfort and care through comprehensive services and programs, including peer-based emotional support, case work assistance, regional seminars and retreats for adults, Good Grief Camps for children, and grief and trauma resources. Founded out of tragedy in 1994, TAPS has assisted more than 44,000 grieving military families and their caregivers.

Courage hats autographed by Wizards players including Bradley Beal, Marcin Gortat, Otto Porter, John Wall and Martell Webster were sold at the Verizon Center Team Store resulting in proceeds of $31,571.77.
