9:36 am
your involvement i want to talk about the emblem on your shirt team zarian what does it mean? >> it means in english spider, at that ran chula. >> yes. >> when spider lost one leg, he doesn't mean life is over for him, he doesn't mean that he is going to die, so he regenerates. the reason when he call our team zarian because they lost one leg and then they will have a prosthetic, just to work again they will have a prosthetic to start on those activities, like they can do everything like everybody are doing, if you see how they are running with the crutches, that is meant something very very important for us the reason why we call it the team zarian. >> tarantula keeps going they can keep going.
9:37 am
>> pat tell me how knights of columbus got involved. >> we had come to haiti in the weeks following the earthquake and brought a thousand wheelchairs for people injured and very quickly it became apparent to us the people we were working with there, project medishare for haiti, miami medical school, were doing special things and had opportunities to do for things for people of haiti we might be able to help with. the problems with haiti are so large, we thought let's take one thing we can do and that was to commit a million dollars to fit every child who lost a limb in the earthquake in haiti with a prosthetic we have done that we built a complete prosthetic laboratory downtown port-au-prince we were there a couple days ago to dedicate the facility where people receive therapeutic training in honor of the knight of columbus who
9:38 am
died recently who made that project possible. cosponsoring the team fitting the children with prosthetic limbs all part and parcel of something we call helping healing haiti's children. there is so much potential, the attitudes in haiti towards people missing a limb are frankly not very good they are regarded at bad people some how otherwise why would they have lost a limb the beauty of this project working with team zarian is to say to the entire country these types of things need not hold you back there are no limits to what you can do with a little help and a lot of spirit and energy bringing the team here, is a phenomenal thing at walter reed yesterday, they were playing soccer and the wounded warriors were there watching, those being treated at walter reed who lost limbs in afghanistan or iraq looked and thought wow there is something i can do, i can rebuild my life and so, these
9:39 am
wonderful people in haiti who were helped by the u.s. military after the earthquake treated on the hospital ship comfort are coming back and saying thank you, to our wounded warriors by showing them the possibilities that exist for them. >> it is an extraordinary story sidhu i imagine for the team members themselves it is good for them but must make them feel good they are helping others as well. >> so they are so proud to help the other soldiers because according to everything on the soldiers, just after the earthquake they still continue to do all kinds of things, but to thank them, is to come here, to training, the soldiers, to play soccer and to let them know they can do everything, they can still be soldiers even
9:40 am
though they lost both legs they can still work in like as soldiers. >> very positive thing to bring out of a tragic situation i want to thank both of you for coming in want to let folks know three days of events started yesterday today there are soccer clinics and that going on at rfk stadium we will have more on myfoxdc.com. gentlemen thank you. >> thank you so much and for interviewing to let the people know what they can do. >> our pleasure alison back to you. 9:40 a.m. thanks tony. halloween right around the corner that means it is time for boo at the zoo. holly is there live this morning she is up next with more on this event and we will meet some of the creepy crawly this one is cute, residents of the zoo.  ♪ we were skipping stones and letting go ♪
