About Honor Rides

Awareness and Fundraising

Honor Rides are community events geared towards raising awareness and funding for the R2R Program andconnecting Veterans with riders in the local community. Great opportunity for sponsor and donor engagement.


Honor Ride Series
The Honor Rides Series raises awareness and is the funding arm for Ride 2 Recovery and gives the public the opportunity to ride with healing heroes and enlisted military on a non-competitive, fun ride.   Close to 15 Honor Rides will take place throughout the year, with varying distances from 10 to 100 miles.  All funds raised through the Honor Ride Series support Project Hero programs throughout the US.

 
Why Cycling?
Almost all patients with physical and/or psychological disabilities can cycle.  In fact, the teamwork, trust and focus required to learn to ride, and maintaining the proper health and nutrition are important steps in the overall healing process.  Our PROJECT HERO PROGRAM provides expertise, training, events and site location support to promote a fuller recovery in the rehabilitation process.

 
Volunteer
