The Colonel’s Motivational Quotes of the Day!
Good “Monday” Morning Everyone from the “Mobile Eagle’s Nest” here in Phoenix, AZ — 10June 2019!
SGT Billy Mullins and I finished a very HOT 380 miles run from San Diego, CA to Phoenix, AZ after having a great breakfast with REBOOT’s Executive Director Maurice Wilson and RallyPoint Member PO2 Christina “Jian” Phillips and her friend at Mimi’s Cafe. The average temperature yesterday was about 105 degrees along the entire route. Here on Day 9 as we ride over 420 miles to El Paso, TX we’ll have some the same. We’re pass the half point in miles, close to 3,900 this morning. We really need your help in getting those donations.
We’re raising $50,000 to abolish $5Million in Healthcare Debt for our Veterans.
We’ll be posting updates each evening, along with videos, and pictures of each day on our Facebook Page: https://www.facebook.com/RIPRIDE4Vets2/
Please visit our donation page and make your donation to help us meet our goal: https://secure.qgiv.com/event/rrfv2/
Thanks for all your support, COL (Ret) Mikel Burroughs
