Face of America 2017 from national non-profit World T.E.A.M. Sports offers an inspiring weekend of bicycle and hand cycle rides to Gettysburg, Pennsylvania that bring together civilians with retired and active military and first responders, including adaptive military veterans and civilians from across the United States, Puerto Rico and Canada.
Whether you select our classic two-day, 110-mile Arlington, Virginia to Gettysburg route, or our two-day, 120-mile Valley Forge, Pennsylvania to Gettysburg route, you will participate in an established event that inspires and satisfies. Face of America gives you the opportunity to join a growing community of caring people, both able-bodied and disabled, who ride the same road in honoring military veterans and first responders who have given so much in their service.
Presented by Capital One Bank, Face of America 2017 has a limited number of participant and volunteer entries through all categories. Owing to the limited numbers, early registration is highly encouraged.
Adaptive military veterans, first responders and civilians with disabilities ranging from loss of limb to paralysis to blindness to Post-Traumatic Stress participate at no cost. All other participants pay a nominal registration fee and are expected to meet or exceed category minimum fundraising goals. Funds raised through participant donations and fundraising with family, friends and colleagues will cover the costs of our participating adaptive riders, and also cover the expense of the event. Any remaining funds raised will support upcoming World T.E.A.M. Sports events nationally.
Sunday, April 30 is Face of America Day in the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania. Want to cheer on the riders as they arrive at the AllStar Expo Complex at 2638 Emmitsburg Road in Gettysburg Sunday afternoon? They are scheduled to arrive between 1 and 1:30 p.m., following a route through downtown Gettsyburg and the historic Civil War battlefields.
This April 28 through 30, Face of America changes lives through cycling.
