Heroes for Heroes Benefit held for Fischbach family on Aug. 11

On Aug. 11, there was a Heroes for Heroes Benefit co-ed softball tournament for Pete and Carol Fischbach at Bird Creek Park, Wautoma. In June, Pete and Carol were seriously injured in a motor vehicle crash that has left them both off work for several months.

Eight teams came out to participate in the fundraiser, including EMS, the Waushara County Sheriff’s Department, volunteer fire departments, and ThedaCare. After the games, there was a raffle and a Championship game.


Pete and Carol spoke with the community members who attended and volunteered at the event. The two showed their strength by smiling, joking around, and enjoying the day’s festivities.
