Registration Open for Wounded Warrior Project Community Rides

NEW YORK, June 19, 2017 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Registration is open for the public to participate in the 10th annual Wounded Warrior Project® (WWP) Soldier Ride® Community Rides that will take place in July near New York City. Soldier Ride is a multi-day bicycling event, where injured veterans are challenged to push themselves physically and mentally as they manage visible and invisible wounds of war. And they don't ride alone – they move forward together, as a unit, just like during their military service. 

Wounded Warrior Project is returning to New York City and Long Island for Soldier Ride on July 19.

Community Rides are similar – and special in that the public can take part – yet they're more than just a chance to pedal alongside our nation's wounded warriors. Community Rides are an opportunity to show support and raise critical funds that allow WWP to connect warriors with programs and services that empower them to live their lives on their terms, free of charge. 

During Community Rides, not only do locals line the streets, wave flags, and cheer as the crowds ride by, they host and volunteer at a variety of pre-ride events to raise awareness and funds. There is even a beachfront community picnic at the end of the ride. For registration information and donation details about The Hamptons and Babylon Community Rides, visit fundraise.woundedwarriorproject.org/srhamptons/ and fundraise.woundedwarriorproject.org/srbabylon, respectively.
