In an effort to raise funds for the Northeast Spinal Cord Injury Association and the Zachery Weinstein foundation, Legacy Financial Advisors Inc., Milford, Mass., sponsored the fourth annual Codger Cup at Wedgewood Pines, Stow, Mass.
Zack Weinsten, who grew up in Needham, Mass., is paralyzed from the chest down after a canoeing accident. Despite his injuries, the Skidmore College graduate is pursuing an acting career and has guest-starring roles on Fox’s “Glee” and an upcoming episode CBS’ “NCIS.”
Zack’s parents, Adrian and Elliot Weinstein, are longtime friends of Legacy principals Linda and Paul J. Mauro, and inspired the Mauros to promote spinal cord injury awareness.
“Our firm has really been energized by the success of Zack who, despite his injuries, never lost his drive to achieve his dreams,” says Legacy President Paul J. Mauro, CLU, ChFC. “Everyone at Legacy contributes time and money and helps us make a difference to Zack and others who have huge mobility challenges.”
