The mission of the Wounded Warrior Project is to honor and empower wounded warriors. Their purpose is to

  • To raise awareness and enlist the public's aid for the needs of injured service members.
  • To help injured service members aid and assist each other.
  • To provide unique, direct programs and services to meet the needs of injured service members.



"Injured warriors were outfitted 35 state-of-the-art adaptive hand cycles, trikes and bicycles Wednesday. They are scheduled begin their ride to the Chicago area Thursday in Kenosha, Wis. followed by a Chicago area ride Friday and finishing up Saturday with a ride through the Chicago Forrest Preserve at Bulfrog Lake at 11 a.m".
