A Warrior's Wish®: Cycling Goals

Wounded service members assigned to the Wounded Warrior Battalion-East aboard Camp Lejeune are required to participate within the Warrior Athlete Reconditioning Program.  This is a key part of each service members' rehabilitation.  For one Marine, this program was a welcome addition to his weekly activity.  He became an active member of the WARP Cycling Program and rides 5 - 6 days per week.  In leading up to some major biking events, he was even riding two times per day.
In October, he had two major events on his schedule.  First was a ride from Cincinnati, Ohio to Nashville, Tennessee.  One week later he flew to San Antonio, Texas to participate in the Wounded Warrior Battalion's Regimental Cycling Camp.
The only thing missing was an actual bike.  Through all of the intense training, this Marine was using the battalion-issued bike.  His Wish was for his own road bike, cycling kits, and the gear to ride safely and comfortably.
Hope For The Warriors® understands how important physical activity and athletic goals are to each of our warriors.  We proudly granted this Wish.
