Each supporter will receive an official Soldier Ride National Tour T-shirt as well as an invitation to the community picnic immediately following the rides.
Warriors of all ability levels cycle in Soldier Ride on state-of-the-art handcycles, trikes, and bicycles, as well as unmodified road bikes for those not requiring adaptive equipment. WWP provides some equipment and support at no cost to warriors.
Soldier Ride began in 2004 when civilian Chris Carneh completed a coast-to-coast bicycle trip in support of WWP. He rode more than 5,000 miles and raised more than $1 million.
WWP’s mission is to (1) honor and empower wounded warriors by raising awareness and enlisting the public’s aid for the needs of injured servicemembers, (2) help injured servicemen and -women aid each other, and (3) provide programs and services to meet their needs.
