Honor Ride raises funds and creates aware-ness for Ride 2 Recovery, which is a program where veterans support other veterans to restore hope and purpose. Once registered, participants are prompted to create a fundraising page, but there is no minimum fundraising amount required. All proceeds support Ride 2 Recovery programs at military installations and VA hospitals around the country, and the purchase of bikes for participating veterans. Participants will end the race with a festival-like atmosphere that includes lunch and music!
