For eleven years, thousands of Americans and riders from throughout the world have participated in the Face of America ride from World T.E.A.M. Sports. From its launch as a cross-country ride in the summer of 2000, through two years of serving as the official 9/11 commemorative ride from Ground Zero in New York to Washington, to the current Washington to Gettysburg route, the Face of America ride has brought together civilians, active duty military, first responders and adaptive veterans in an inclusive bicycle ride. This April 26 through 28, the Face of America bicycle ride returns.
This will be my 4th year cycling from the Pentagon near Washington, DC to the historic battlefields of Gettysburg, PA. This is a unique opportunity to honor America’s servicemen and women who have been wounded or injured, as they set and make new goals. It is also a wonderful charity organization that helps disabled athletes like myself, succeed through athletics and challenges. World TEAM Sports has changed my life for the better.
Created by World T.E.A.M Sports, the 2013 Face of America is not just a bike ride. It is an opportunity to share stories and build camaraderie with 500 participants while honoring America’s disabled veterans and the American spirit. Please enjoy some photos that I took on my Cannon and iPhone in the Face of America 2012. Please also donate to support our heroes and civilians who benefit greatly from the events that World TEAM Sports sponsors.
