What is Ride 2 Recovery?

Ride 2 Recovery has been established by several disabled veterans to help make a difference in the lives of veterans by assisting in the mental and physical rehabilitation.  Their mission has three goals:  Support the participation of wounded warriors and veterans in the R2R program; Provide handicap bicycles, technical equipment, clinics and outings; and improve the health and morale of participants.

On June 9th the Department of Nebraska American Legion Auxiliary will hold a bike ride in Hickman.  The distances are 5 miles, 25 miles or 45 miles.  There is also a walk of approximately 1.2 miles.  Participants are asked to raise funds for the bike ride/walk.  All funds raised will be given to the R2R program.

If you are interested in participating in the bike ride or walk, please contact Veronica Kuhlmann by email.
