Support Veterans with Grant
Amount Raised
Fundraising Goal $1,000.00

Hello All,

So I took last year off as I am getting old and was not the required condition.  But through much more focused training, I am back to make this 310 mile ride again.  This will be the 17th year of this organized ride from Pittsburgh, PA to Gaithersburg, MD through the Allegheny Mountains and along the C&O Canal towpath.  The sole beneficiary of the funds raised from this four day ride is Operation Second Chance (OSC). For more than a decade OSC has been committed to providing aid and support for wounded, recovering and ill combat veterans as they transition back to active duty or civilian life.

In the past, Ride Allegheny has been able to raise $500,000 from this ride alone.  I am quite sure the group of a bit over 100 riders, will crush this target.  But it really doesn't matter as it is a small amount compared to what is needed to provide missing benefits to our veterans in need.  So we need to go way past this mark. OSC provides items like advanced prosthetics so our veterans can run, swim, or even ride a bike again, to retrofitting homes to accommodate these veterans' new life realities of being wheelchair-bound or impaired otherwise.

Your generosity will have an immediate and substantial impact on those who have sacrificed so much for our nation!

By the way, OSC is committed to keeping overhead expenses low so that more of your money goes directly to the Cause you care about.  In fact, since 2005 OSC has averaged less than 10% in non-program related expenses (overhead, salaries, fundraising, etc.)!  This puts them in the upper echelon of efficiency for non-profits!

If you are comfortable on your couch, then think of what these veterans have been through and continue to struggle with.  If riding a bike for four days in the rain and mud can get you to click on the link below, then my ploy has worked.  Please send what you can.  I promise it is tax deductible and your will feel good about it. Better than my tired old body ill when I finish Oct 7.

Thanks again for your support!
