WWP Soldier Ride highlight of Bicycle Festival

WOUNDED WARRIORMany Cave Creek residents lined Cave Creek Road Saturday morning to cheer on the Wounded Warrior Project Soldier Riders and thank them for their service.

The Soldier Ride is a rehabilitative cycling event designed to challenge wounded warriors to get back in the saddle, both literally and figuratively. It also is a tool to help heal both the physical and mental wounds of war.

Many of these men and women have been physically active throughout their lives and are not going to lose that. They are going to get on the bike and prove to themselves 'I can still do this.'

These wounded veterans are the embodiment of the spirit of this country and they should make us all proud to say we are Americans. These rides also raise awareness for the Wounded Warrior Project mission and its many important programs designed to serve injured soldiers and their families, and in turn raise money through sponsorships, pledges and donations. WWP is a non profit organization.
