      Soldier Ride's cycling events serve the dual purpose of raising public awareness for the needs of wounded soldiers while assisting them in their rehabilitation. Participation in our cycling events aids in the rehabilitation process of the wounded, giving them opportunity to reinvigorate their bodies and showing them how much life still has to offer. Each rider is provided the adaptive equipment needed to ride a bicycle though missing one or more limbs. Contributions to the Ride the Sunshine State event will be used to cover the cost of wounded soldiers' participation in this rehabilitative event and to support the programs and services of Soldier Ride, providing comfort and aid to the wounded during their hospital recovery and readjustment to civilian life. Contributions to Soldier Ride are tax deductible. Click here to become a Soldier Ride supporter today!
