Benefit Ride For Vets Set For July 25th & 26th
#22KILL is a program under a veteran nonprofit called Honor Courage Commitment, Inc. The #22KILL initiative is to simply show your ongoing support for the U.S. military and the veterans who have served. Saturday, July 25th and Sunday, July 26th, there will be a benefit ride to raise money and awareness for this fantastic organization.
The run will start at Oil City Harley Davidson, with riders heading to Indepndance Rock, coming back through Fremont canyon and end at the Sunset Bar & Grill for the 20th annual Metalfest. Food will be included with the purchase of a raffle ticket for the bike, a 2015 Harley Davidson street bob. Tickets will go on sale February 17th, are $100 each, and there are only 250 available. Camping is included in the price of the ticket.
If you don't want a ticket for the bike and still want to make the ride it's 20 per single rider and 25 per couple.
According to event organizer Keith Smith:
22 kill is to raise awareness for the 22 vets per day that are committing suicide. They work with vets to help them go to school, be more involved with the community, and help them to start their own veteran ran companies by keeping their businesses in house until they find a building to move them in to. They also assist by helping wounded and disabled vets by building wheel chair ramps and fixing up houses. The company is based out of Dallas Texas.
Project Healing Waters is already on board as a sponsor, and the ride is still welcoming all sponsors and raffle item donations. It is a non-profit, so anything donated is tax deductible. If you would like more information on the ride, or would be willing to donate a prize and/or sponsor the event, you can contact Keith Smith at 307-251-3497, Kimberly Smith at 307-262-9865, or visit the Facebook event page here.
They were willing to put their lives on the line for our freedom, and all you have to do to show your support is jump on your bike and ride. Help support the vets while enjoying a cruise in beautiful Wyoming!
