THE STORY:

Mike has been affiliated with MC-LEF since 2010 when he participated in the ride from the Marine Corps Memorial to Ground Zero. He served 7 years as an Artillery officer in the U.S. Marine Corps including a tour as the forward observer for an infantry company in eastern Afghanistan. He recently joined CNBC as a News Desk Producer where he supports field reporters in delivering breaking news broadcasts. Mike has a B.S. in Education from SUNY Cortland and an M.B.A. from NYU’s Stern School of Business.

Here is the story:

Twelve (12) riders bicycle 3,200 miles across America from Oceanside, CA to Ground Zero New York, NY in nine (9) days. This event is an extension of the annual MC-LEF / Travis Manion Foundation ride from Washington DC to NYC.


Date: September 22 to September 30, 2012

Goal: To safely ride across America and in the process, raise national level awareness for our foundations. Our financial goal is to raise $1MM. All donations will be split evenly between MC-LEF and the Travis Manion Foundation.

About the Foundations Warrior Ride Across America has chosen to raise money for:

  • The Travis Manion Foundation's (TMF) mission is to assist our nation's veterans and the families of Fallen Heroes. We will continue the service to community and country exemplified by these Fallen Heroes and veterans. In the spirit of the Fallen, we will foster strength of mind and body to create a generation of future leaders.
  • The Marine Corps - Law Enforcement Foundation (MC-LEF) mission is to encourage the spiritual, moral, intellectual and physical development of children through education. This Foundation was formed in February of 1995 by former Marines and law enforcement personnel who strongly believe that our nation's most precious resource is its youth. All costs for this ride will be carried by the volunteer riders and support crew. All donations will be contributed to the foundations.
