    Default Wheelers for the Wounded

    This is something I think most on here will find interesting.

    If you can find the time for any of the runs please do.
    Here is a link to the forum for this too.

    Thanks wildman! Being a disabled Vet myself, I find this a great thing!

    Didn't see any in MN, but I may try and catch one near me, like MI.

    The one in VA is September 12-13 with no club sponsoring/hosting. Anyway to work out who? I also saw it didn't see where in VA. Would that be dependent on who sponsored/hosted it?

    Okay guys you got to read a little more into this whole thing.

    This isn't taking place until next year starting in April and going til Sept.
    Yes 2009 not this year. He is looking for club/groups from states that don't have a host to step up and for the states that do to help the hosting club out. I don't have time right now to break it all down but when I get home this afternoon I'll try to explain a little more about it.

    Beltway Jeepers is trying to support the Wounded Warrior project and other events like this. (We will be raffleing off custom bumpers at the Falls Church auto show and donating the money) I am also one of the Trailride coordinators/event planners for the club. I work at HRC and have access to the Wounded Warrior POC's and the PSG for the WTU at Walter Reed. I read through the web page, and will contact the rest of the BOD about Planning/Hosting the Virginia event.

    Sticky done.

    I wasn't trying to sharpshoot the program at all. I read the events thread on the website itself, but didn't read the entire site. My bad.

    Well guys I got involved with his idea from day one. Just happened to find his MYSpace page so I have been around for a while and know a lot of what is going on. I think it is awesome and am helping to host the event in Washington state. I am also going to meet him in Moab and wheel there, then go home and in a few weeks head to Calif and meet him at the Rubicon. From there on I am going to follow him thru Oregon, Washington, Idaho and Colorado. Then I'll head back home from there. Looking forward to meeting a bunch of great people and wheeling in some great places.

    If you can get the word out to everyone you know and help to get in contact with wounded soldiers and vets who would be interested in this that would be great.
