Wounded Warriors Bike from Marlins Park to Key West

Have you ever biked more than 150 miles?!? Neither have I! Yesterday, I met a group of United States veterans on their way to Key West from Miami. It was truly inspiring!

The Soldier Ride started Thursday morning on South Beach with a warm up which took cyclists across the Venetian Causeway here to Marlins Park. The entire Marlins front-office was present to welcome and cheer on the veterans. Most of the cyclists are medically retired service members representing the Wounded Warrior Project.

The mission of the Wounded Warrior Project is to honor and empower wounded warriors and to foster the most successful, well-adjusted generation of wounded service members in our nation’s history. I am proud to work for an organization that cares about our military and especially our veterans. Below are some great pictures from their special visit to Marlins Park. Enjoy!
