Erika's Honor Ride Fundraising Page
Hello friends and family! This is the third year that I will be participating in the Ohio Honor ride to make a difference in the lives of thousands of Veterans and First Responders, as well as their families and communities. By participating in Project Hero’s Ohio Honor Ride, I'm raising funds so that more injured veterans can participate in free, life-changing programs and improve their mental and physical health and wellness.
This cause is dear to me because I have great respect for those who sacrifice so much for us. It's not just the individuals serving, it's their families members and friends around them who are also affected when something happens. For veterans, I fear at times their contributions and sacrifices are out of sight, and out of mind. So many individuals gave up so much for us to live the lives we have each day. Also for first responders, they are there for us in that final hour, the most crictical moments in our lives supporting us, making sure that we are safe and get through.
Every day 20 veterans commit suicide and more than 20 percent of active and retired military have some form of Post Traumatic Stress Disorder. Working in partnership on research with Georgetown University Hospital and other leading clinical researchers, Project Hero programs have a positive measurable impact on helping those who suffer from PTSD and brain injury.
From building and donating adaptive bikes and producing rehabilitative cycling events throughout the nation to supporting community-based rehabilitation and recovery programs and important medical and clinical research, Project Hero is helping ensure a healthier future for our nation’s healing heroes.
Give back to those who have given so much!
