Bikers Rally with Local Harley-Davidson Dealership to Support Wounded Warrior Project

JACKSONVILLE, Fla., Feb. 13, 2018 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Motorcycle enthusiasts from around the Southeast came together at a recent event hosted by Adamec Harley-Davidson® in support of Wounded Warrior Project® (WWP). Riders participated in a poker run, a multi-stop bike tour where each rider received a playing card at each respective stop. Matching the rules of poker, the rider with the best poker hand at the end of the ride won a prize.

Motorcycle enthusiasts from around the Southeast came together at a recent event hosted by Adamec Harley-Davidson® in support of Wounded Warrior Project® (WWP).

"We had 145 riders come out from different chapters in the region, including Georgia, North Carolina, and South Florida," said Missy Rivera, events coordinator at Adamec Harley-Davidson. "Everyone looked like they had a great time – at the end when the poker hands were shown was very exciting. And a lot of our riders really enjoyed getting to see where Wounded Warrior Project's headquarters is located."

Adamec Harley-Davidson has been a supporter of WWP for years, including providing an internship to a warrior served by WWP through Warriors to Work®. This career counseling program guides warriors to their next career through resume assistance, interview practice, coaching, and networking, while also working with employers to highlight the benefits of hiring veterans.

Adam Sandoval, another longtime supporter of WWP who holds a world record for motorcycle riding (http://newsroom.woundedwarriorproject.org/making-an-impact-A-Motorcycle-Enthusiast-His-Chihuahua-and-18-Months-on-The-Road), also participated in the event. He also recently wrapped up another cross-country motorcycle adventure, where he gave away eight new motorcycles to deserving veterans (http://adamsandovalrides.com/mission-thank-you).

"I've done a lot of riding in the last few years to support our wounded veterans, and I want people to see that you can serve even if you don't wear the uniform," Adam said. "If you can't give money, give your time, and if you can't give your time, find your niche, whatever that is, and raise awareness for those who have fought and sacrificed for the freedoms we enjoy every single day. If you can't serve, find a way to serve those who have."

Funds raised by the poker run event will support WWP programs that connect wounded veterans with services that empower them to live their lives on their own terms. To see those programs in action, visit http://newsroom.woundedwarriorproject.org.
