We are getting very close to our first Bike 22 event. (The 22 represents how many veterans take their lives every day.) The Bike 22 rides start the first week of July. Over 90 cities will be visited by CEO Steve Durgin here at Victory for Veterans. I will be adding links and you can find the city near you so you can ride with Steve as he comes into your city. Another link will have the registration.
Why is Steve doing this? Very good question.
Steve comes from a military family. He has several who have sacrificed their time to serve their country. He wants to give back to our veterans and let them know they are important. That is why he created Bike 22.
Why do we need to reach out to veterans? Another good question
The amount of suicides in the military is alarming. 22 veterans take their own lives every day. I said every day! This is not every year! That is how Steve came up with the title Bike 22. There are many other veterans who are homeless and live on the streets. Others are battling PTSD, TBI, depression, war wounds, etc.
What will the Bike 22 do to raise money? You ask many good questions! 🙂
During the Bike 22 events people will register to ride with steve on their own bikes. The registration cost is $44.00. That money will be used to help our veterans. With each registration there will be a complementary Bike 22 T-shirt.
As a side note… If you have a need to do a fundraiser, look no further. If you take charge and seek out people to fill out a Bike 22 registration, your group will get back $5.00 for every registration you get. That could be substantial. In the bigger cities Steve will be visiting, you could get as many as 5,000 people to sign up. You know how much that would be for your group? $25,000 dollars!
