Follow & Support Veterans Charity Ride
VETERANS CHARITY RIDE
Veterans Charity Ride (VCR) is a non-profit organization that delivers Motorcycle Therapy and additional life changing, life saving holistic programs specifically designed to assist wounded and amputee combat veterans with their needs and the issues they deal with on a daily basis. Helping our fellow veterans through outreach, action, activities, education and follow-up is what drives our organization.
Our successful actions that have proven to help veterans who are suffering from Post Traumatic Stress, anxiety, sleeping disorders, Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI), and problems with re-assimilation into civilian life, is to: a) provide them a safe environment with fellow veterans and people they can trust, b) give them outdoor activities that are motivating, enjoyable, challenging and of interest to them, c) introduce them to and educate them on holistic healthy natural alternatives, and d) assist them with rehabilitating their own personal goals and purposes.
The end result of our program is a healthier and happier, more capable individual, who is now living life in a much better physical and mental condition, and able to help and support other veterans to do the same.
RIDE TO STURGIS BIKE RALLY
We take wounded and amputee veterans on motorcycles, trikes and sidecars from Los Angeles to the Sturgis Bike Rally in South Dakota. In 2015, eight veterans made the trip on brand new Indian motorcycles with two custom built Champion sidecars. In 2016 it grew to twenty veterans and three sidecars. In 2017, the ride to Sturgis will take fifteen more veterans on this epic journey with a fleet that includes six Champion sidecars and late model and brand new Indian Motorcycles.
We’ll spend over a week riding on America’s most beautiful roads, getting to know each other and helping each other with Motorcycle Therapy. The shared experiences of serving brings them together, veteran to veteran to help each other heal. We also show the Veterans just how much their service means to America, by stopping in small towns along the way to meet the grateful people of our nation who want to celebrate these brave men and women. Along the way we surprise the riders with excursions and meet with interesting and inspiring people.
Once in Sturgis, we spend the week of the rally, riding the Black Hills, attending events and giving the Veterans the unique “Sturgis Experience”.
This simple concept, born out of a cross-country ride and a big purpose to help veterans is now a nationally recognized program.
