This April 29th-30th, 2017, I will again be participating in the Face of America bike ride, an inspiring, two-day, 110-mile bicycle and hand cycle ride from the Pentagon in Arlington, Virginia to the historic Civil War battlefields of Gettysburg, Pennsylvania. This annual ride lead by the national non-profit, World T.E.A.M. Sports, honors our injured military veterans and includes more than 150 veterans and active-duty participants with injuries ranging from amputation to paralysis to blindness to post-traumatic stress and traumatic brain injury.
Held annually since 2006, the Face of America ride is one of the largest non-competitive bicycling events in the Washington, D.C. area. In 2016, over 600 riders participated in the ride - many of whom came from across the United States and Canada. This will be my 9th year with this ride. I am again riding in remembrance of Iowan Bob Briggs, who passed a few years ago from injuries sustained in Iraq, and in honor of my daughter-in-law, Emily, currently serving as a pilot in the U.S. Navy.
I'd like to ask you to support me in this year's ride through your financial donation. Each able-bodied participant is riding in support of the injured veterans, and raising money to cover the costs for the ride for them. Donations, and sponsorship funding, provide for military and civilian athletes with disabilities to join this inspiring effort. At all World T.E.A.M. Sports events, persons with disabilities participate at no cost. All of your donation monies go to transporting these folks to and from the event and providing them with adaptive bikes/trikes/hand cycles, food, and lodging.
Contributions to to the event are tax deductible. World T.E.A.M. Sports sends donation receipts to all contributors to aid in filing your taxes.
Many of you have contributed to this effort in the past, and I thank you. I would ask you to help out again this year with any amount, no matter how small. If you are unable to give financially, please forward this message or the link to my donation page to someone you think may be able to help out. I do a number of organized rides every year, but this one is the only one I will do that requires donations be solicited. It is the only one I feel is truly worthy of the effort. It is a remarkable ride and one that changes the lives of all that participate.
