Race For The Wounded

Race For The Wounded (RFTW) is going back to run the 1000 this year. We are working on getting two bikes running for the 1000, one pro and one sportsman. I am also working on getting some wounded vets into trucks. I am working with a team now that is talking about letting a vet navigate for the first part of the race. It seems to be working getting people into helping our wounded get into some good old racing!!

Last year as some of you know we raised over $40,000 for the Wounded Warrior Project. This year we are taking it in a new direction, we are starting our own non profit that will put money raised to help get vets into off road racing. Not only driving but also providing medical coverage, or as part of chase crews. We have also been looking at sending them to mechanical schools in hopes of landing them jobs on teams.

We have also updated our website with a volunteer page if any of you would like to help us out in any way. Being a new non profit we are not sure what we will be needing right now for help, please list your skills and I am sure that we can find something that we will need help on at one point or another.

I would like to thank everyone in the ADV community that has showed us so much support in the last year.

I also want to add that we have a bunch of shirts from last years race. If anyone wants one for cheap send me a message. If there is enough people interested I will start another thread in vendors.

Thanks

Made the drive from Ga. to Tx. to get the race bike to John. He made the drive for Az. It looks as if we are only going to run one bike again due to cost. Man that drive sucked, made it in just under 48hrs. This is a pic on the Hwy. at a stand still after a bad crash, after about an hour they turned us around.
You can see the bike on the back of the jeep. John is going to be doing the prep this year. One thing that I know we are going to be doing is running Moose Bibs!! After Allan having 3 flats within 200 miles we won't be taking a chance again. "live and learn"
