THE STORY:

No matter who you are, No matter what you do, You absolutely have the power to change. We can sit around and wish to make a difference, we can give a little hear and there to have a feel good, or pat ourselves on the back. If you are not making someone else's life better than you are wasting your time. 22 veterans a day take their own life, this was from a study done in 2012, there are smaller studies during 2014 that say it has almost reached 30 per day. We are loosing heroes, and its time to do something. Small info about myself, I am a veteran, I have been overseas and have seen what war does both on the field and off. I suffer from multiple TBI's that cause seizures, along with other medical issues. For most of our veterans the fight is not over once they leave the battlefield, and I want to help provide outlets to help overcome mental and physical obstacles. I will be riding 8,30 miles over the course of a year, that will be primarily mountain bike, through trails and dirt roads. There will be road bike races I will attend and help build awareness. Through the year I will be participating in multiple mountain bike endurance races over 100 miles long, along with 24 hour races, 12 hour races, and 6 hour races. Through the year I will call upon you all to add miles of your own. I challenge anybody, expert rider to someone who doesnt even have a bike. To ride 22 miles in one day. Upon completing 22 miles, donate 22 dollars, Upon donation you will be given a special digital award thanking you for your accomplishment and donation. You say that you rode and I will trust that you did, if you lie, well I will put that 22$ to good use and then you will only be the wiser.
70% of donations will be given to 4 different orgs. that help make a difference in vets lives.
www.NoBarriers.com www.nobarrierssoldiers.com Helps put wounded veterans on the summit of a mountain, this is a huge resource for inspiring wounded vets to overcome their wounds from war.
www.groundoperations.net This is a documentary film that helps educate the public about organic produce along with the veterans becoming farmers, which aides in recovery from symptoms of war.
www.growingveterans.org This non-profit provides veterans with jobs, and produce from the farm run by volunteer vets.
Along with these programs I will be donating to a non profit that rescues dogs from local shelters, trains them to be service and therapy dogs and then gives them to veterans. I cannot thank the person who donated my lab to help with my seizures, and combat stress, duke has helped through very hard times and I am forever thankful.
Time to make a difference in our nation, and it starts with those who have served and sacrificed.
