Jared Allen’s Homes for Wounded Warriors (JAH4WW) is excited to announce its latest partnership with RIDE 430 powered by the Free Wheel Foundation.
The Free Wheel Foundation is an independent, nonprofit organization that gives injured members of the military and the families of injured and fallen warriors hope and assistance as they travel the road to recovery. They organize and promote the country’s leading fundraising events and make meaningful contributions to provide long-term support for veterans and their families. They are also dedicated to giving their participants and partners and unparalleled experience, to raising more money per participant than any other organization of our kind and to ensuring the money our participants raise goes directly to support our military heroes. Whether it’s American brave military men and women or their participants, who push through their personal limits for the cause, the Free Wheel Foundation honors and supports ordinary people, doing extraordinary things.
This year’s fundraising event, RIDE 430 will be a four-day, 430-mile challenge in which cyclists must complete more than 100 miles each day, including mountain climbs. In addition to training and completing the ride, participants must fundraise, with the average rider raising more than $6,600 for the cause, more per rider than any event of its kind. Money raised by the RIDE 430 Challenge supplements military assistance and bridges the gaps to help injured service people and families who lost loved ones recover. Our funding helps provide everything from financial assistance, scholarships and adaptive sports equipment for injured heroes to camps for kids who’ve lost a parent in combat.
For the upcoming ride, the foundations own Co-Founder, President and Board Member Dylan Vicha, who will take the four-day, 430-mile cycling challenge on October 8 – 11, 2014 to help raise money to help injured service people and families who have lost loved ones. For all of the money raised from this year’s RIDE 430 Challenge, one third of the proceeds will go directly toward remodeling and rebuilding handicap accessible homes for Army Sgt. 1st Class Cory Remsburg and Army Sgt. John Ricketts. The rest of the proceeds will be split between the MARSOC Foundation and The Knights of Heroes.
