WHO IS CHANCE VEAZEY

Chance is a a former University of Georgia second baseman, whose baseball career ended tragically in  2009 when he sustained a complete spinal cord injury from his T-8 through his T-10 vertebrae. He was only a freshman.

 

For Chance, continuing to gain independence became a priority after his injury; he was going to drive, hunt, and live life to the fullest - no matter what. Andee's Army and Canine Companions for Independence® are proud to name an assistance dog in Chance's honor. His independent spirit, sheer force of will and incredible ability to spread hope to everyone he encounters (especially other injured athletes) make him a powerful advocate for others living with SCI.

Mike Foltynewicz is a pitcher for the Atlanta Braves; a father; a husband; a dad (to doggies and a little man!); and an amazing community leader.

Folty created #FoltyFriday - a roaming pizza party where Folty brings pizza and cheer to classrooms around the greater Atlanta area - to inspire and encourage local little ones. Andee's Army and Canine Companions for Independence® are proud to name an assistance dog in Folty's honor. His willingness to use his talent and platform to serve our Atlanta community and love for little ones and animals make him a deserving honoree.
