Local athletes will take to the field Tuesday night for wounded veterans.

"Shootout for Soldiers" is a 24-hour lacrosse game with teams from all over the state competing in friendly matchups.

Each team raised a minimum of $750 to go toward organizations that work with vets.

The fundraiser began in 2012 by a group of students at Boys' Latin.

So far this year, nearly $190,000 has been raised.

The games kickoff at 7 p.m. at Troy Park in Elkridge.
