SEND OFF PARTY: 3 Guys on Motorcycles, 5500 Miles Across the USA to Purchase Injured Veterans All-Terrain Wheelchairs
August 22, 2014
Benefiting our Vets and the Independence FundWe made it back and raised $7,838 in the process!
The Independence Fund, Inc. was created in 2007 to assist severely injured Veterans in obtaining tools, therapies, and equipment they were not otherwise receiving from governmental agencies, especially in relation to mobility and quality of life. Since the organization's inception, it has provided over 5 million dollars in mobility devices to deserving verterans.
Our goal is to raise funds for All-Terrain Chairs to ENABLE veterans with severe injuries to be self-reliant. In addition to improving activities of daily living, these All-Terrain Chairs can provide accessibility to become more active again. Some of these activities include: fishing, hunting, and going to the beach.
The Indepedence Fund helps provide solutions that can re-install ablility, independence, and hope in the lives of those who lost it.
It could be argued that this little adventure started out as a mid-life crisis, but you'd be wrong. Lucas Cobb, Kevin Duckworth & Ben German work at designing and building many websites including one for INDEPENDENCE FUND INC. When seeing the great work the Independence Fund does and reading about the lives they have impacted, it was an easy decision to turn an idea into a reality.
The Challenge: To ride three motorcycles 5,500 miles across the USA and raise $15,000 in the process.
Are they seasoned riders? Well one is. The other two have only been riding since March!
Do they have all the supplies they need to complete this trip? No.
Do they need your help to achieve this goal? 100% Yes!
We need your help in spreading the word, creating contacts for events along the way, helping us gather the equipment needed for the trip, but above all else we need you to "Donate now" to benefit this awesome cause. With your help we can do this!
Thank you in advance for your generosity!
