Prince Harry to join fund raising Comedy Night - Stand Up For Heroes
The Bob Woodruff Foundation and New York Comedy Festival - Stand Up for Heroes event on November 18th 2020 will be held virtually for the first time in the 14-year history of the event. This year's fund raising event will include appearances by comedians and musicians as well as the Duke of Sussex.The Bob Woodruff Foundation raise money for veterans and military families. Per their website the vision of the foundation is 'to create long lasting positive outcomes for US wounded, ill and injured veterans, service members and their families'. Donations can be made through the website.
The foundation was set up by the Woodruff family following Bob's life-threatening injuries he sustained when reporting in Iraq for ABC's World News Tonight, and which resulted in Bob spending 36 days in a medically-induced coma at a Naval hospital in Maryland. Whilst there, he and his family met families of service members dealing with health issues sustained during their military service.
