April 4: Students host laser tag fundraiser for injured veteran

laser-tagPULLMAN, Wash. – A community laser tag fundraiser and silent auction at 10 a.m.-2 p.m. Saturday, April 4, at Cougar Laser Arena, 1234 S. Grand Ave., will support wounded Staff Sgt. Cody Ensley, a Lewiston, Idaho native.

The arena is across the street from the Pullman post office. For safety reasons, participants are encouraged to park at the Calvary Christian Center at 190 SE Crestview St. and walk to the event.

Hosted by students in Washington State University’s sport management program, the event is designed to raise $2,000 for his family to visit Ensley on Mother’s Day in Florida, where he is doing rehabilitation.

He was on patrol during his third tour in northeastern Afghanistan when he was severely injured by an IED blast in November 2013. He has been in and out of hospitals for rehabilitation.
Doctors told Ensley he’d never walk or use his arm again, but in June he walked down the aisle to marry his longtime girlfriend.
