Members of the Buffalo Soldiers wresting team love their new wrestling shoes.

Most of the members of the Buffalo Soldiers wrestling team at Heritage Middle School, East Cleveland, OH, couldn't afford to purchase proper wrestling shoes. The team now has the right shoes to be competitive in the sport, thanks to help from a CHI clinical engineering (CE) team. CHI's CE team members at Mercy Regional Medical Center, Lorain, OH, raised more than $900 to buy shoes for the wrestlers. After receiving the new shoes, the Buffalo Soldiers won all of their matches at their next meet.
