Verna Bell submitted the story of her daughter, Sara, who volunteers for Ride2Recovery. We couldn’t think of a more deserving cause and we’re thrilled to present a Symmetry bicycle to Verna and a Susan B. bicycle to Ride2Recovery. Here’s Verna’s entry:
Ride2Recovery is a not-for-profit organization that promotes rehab for those heroes who have been injured while serving our country. This group helps all wounded veterans and features cycling as the core recovery activity. My inspiration for supporting this cause is in part to my daughter, Sara’s, participation and involvement in R2R. She rides along and assists riders that need help. R2R provides bikes, lodging, meals and transportation to those veterans who want to participate. Much effort and creativity goes into the preparation of the bikes for those who are missing arms and legs or both, so they can participate.
