Kicking off the annual Wounded Warrior Project’s Soldier Ride, the CEO of the Wounded Warrior Project and veteran Ltg. Michael Linnington along with veteran Csm. Tonya Oxendine joined FOX and Friends to share why this event and organization is so important.
Linnington shared that the Soldier Ride started eighteen years ago when a local resident wanted to ride coast to coast to raise awareness for wounded veterans coming back from Iraq and Afghanistan. Since then, it has grown into the great event it is today because of all the support they have received.
Oxendine, who shared her story as a wounded warrior diagnosed with PTSD, anxiety, and depression, explained that the Wounded Warrior Project has helped her heal and continues to do so, adding that this Soldier Ride is part of that healing process.
The Soldier Ride will take place over the course of the next four days starting in Manhattan and ending in the Hamptons. Supporters may donate to the Wounded Warrior Project at https://www.woundedwarriorproject.org/.
