Thank You for Making the 10th Annual Ride for Heroes Held on Saturday, August 17, 2019, a Tremendous Success!!
People in uniform make huge sacrifices to protect and serve all of us. The support shown on 8/17/19 for our veterans, active military personnel, law enforcement, firefighters, corrections personnel, and EMTs was tremendous! Every rider, volunteer, and every event supporter helped ensure the Uniformed Service Program (USP) is here for the brave men and women who struggle with duty-related mental health and addiction issues.
