The Traer Fire Department has been involved in many great causes over the years, and this time around, they're kicking some butt in the process.
The department will be hosting a self-defense class for women at North Tama High School. The event, which will take place on Saturday, January 12, 2013, is a four-hour class designed to give women the skills they need to successfully defend themselves if the situation ever arises.
But it isn't all about getting some free punches in - 100 percent of the proceeds will benefit the Traer Fire Department and the Wounded Warrior Project.
The Wounded Warrior Project is a nonprofit organization designed to honor and empower members of all branches of the United States Armed Forces who have suffered injuries in the line of duty.
The organization has been providing unique and direct programs and services designed to meet the needs of soldiers since its inception in 2002.
Traer's class will be taught by Wesley Sebetka, a certified instructor with 16 years of experience teaching close quarters combat. The cost of the class is $35 per person, which all goes to benefit the department and Wounded Warrior Project.
