Ride 2 Recovery – 200 cyclists coming into Tallahassee Friday 3/8/13

This Friday, March 8, Ride 2 Recovery, a national veterans organization that sponsors cycling events designed to aid combat-wounded veterans in overcoming the obstacles they face, will be making a brief FSU-campus visit. A group of approximately 200 wounded warriors will be completing their six-day Gulf Coast Challenge at the Unconquered Statue on Langford Green at 2:00 pm.

This will be the final leg of the Ride 2 Recovery “Gulf Coast Challenge”. The riders started out from New Orleans on March 2nd, and are making the final leg of the ride from Panama City to Tallahassee.  They are riding in on Pensacola Street, and are supposed to be passing by the FSU campus between 1:30 and 2:30 pm, on their way to the State Capital.

Participants in the “Gulf Coast Challenge” raise funds and awareness for the Ride 2 Recovery mission: “To improve the health and wellness of injured veterans by providing rehabilitation through cycling”.

If your schedule allows, please stop by and congratulate these disabled veterans while photos are being taken at the statue from 2:00 to 2:30. All are invited.

Thank you for your support of all who have sacrificed in service to our country.
