Friends & Family -
This April 29-30 2017, I will again be riding with Team MOAA in the Face of America - a two-day, 110-mile bicycle and hand cycle ride from the Pentagon in Arlington, Virginia to the battlefields of Gettysburg, Pennsylvania. This annual ride put on by national non-profit World T.E.A.M. Sports honors our injured military veterans and includes more than 170 veterans and active-duty participants with injuries ranging from amputation to paralysis to blindness to post-traumatic stress and traumatic brain injury.
This is my 4th consecutive year riding in the Face of America. Held annually since 2006, the Face of America 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.
I'm asking for your support in this year's ride through your financial donation - either by check or through the Support Mac! link at the top left of this page. Each non-disabled participant is riding in support of the injured veterans, and raising money to cover the costs for the ride, and to support upcoming events from World T.E.A.M. Sports. At World T.E.A.M. Sports events, persons with disabilities participate at no cost.
As a registered 501(c)(3) not-for-profit organization, contributions to World T.E.A.M. Sports are tax deductible, provided you meet the IRS criteria and maintain certain records. (A relatively simple explanation of IRS requirements can be found at IRS Tax Tip 2010-60). World T.E.A.M. Sports donation receipts to all contributors to aid in this process. For questions regarding the tax or legal aspects of your donation, I encourage you to contact your legal or tax advisor.
If desiring to pay by check:
- Make check payable to World TEAM Sports
- note in memo "Mac Silvester FOA Ride 2017"
- mail to: World T.E.A.M. Sports, Face of America 2017
