The Long Road Home Project has three goals:
First, to give our veteran cyclists the opportunity to use the healing power of long-distance cycling to overcome their own war-related injuries.
Second, to draw national attention to the fact that 100,000s of service men and women often face considerable challenges when returning home, and
Third, to raise money for direct-service veterans charities.
This year, the Long Road Home Project is proud to partner with Operation First Response. Their mission is to serve all branches of our nation’s Wounded Heroes and their families with personal and financial needs. Services are provided from the onset of injuries or illness, throughout their recovery period and along their journey from military life to the civilian world. Financial aid varies as each case is based on individual needs ranging from rent, utilities, vehicle payments, groceries, clothing, and travel expenses.
