Biking for veterans

04.07 BIKEMedford, Ore., — Three Rogue Valley friends are making the 110-mile trek from the nation’s capitol to a historic battleground, all by bike.

More than 700 cyclists will participate in “Face of America” this year. A two day event that helps support disabled veterans.

Among those cyclists are local businessmen Ken Snelling, Bill Anderberg and Terry Rasmussen.

Though none are veterans and are all able bodied, to them it’s about being able to help the veterans along the way.

Snelling says, “It’s hard not to get tied in to this and really excited when you see a one legged guy, pushing a guy in a hand cycle, that doesn’t have any legs. I mean it’s hard not to see that and get totally inspired.”

The ride is from April 22nd to the 24th. About 175 veterans are participating, but the ride doesn’t come cheap.

Each participant is asked to raise a minimum of $800, and the guys aren’t quite there yet.

If you want to donate to their team, just type in any of their names on this website under “sponsor an athlete”. You can click the link to the website here HERE.

You can also send checks made out to World Team Sports and sent to 1625 Cady Road, Jacksonville, OR 97530.
