For those of you who do not know my brother-in-law Tony Wilcoxen. He is an active duty member in the Army.   A year and a half ago he underwent brain surgery to have a cyst removed. The type of cyst he had has a 10% survival rare. His life has changed drastically since. He is now diabetic, suffers from memory loss, vision loss, and must take thyroid medicine daily just to name a few. He is still living within a care unit to help oversee his health on a daily basis.

 Fast forward, two months ago I saw posted on my father-in-laws facebook page pictures of Tony participating in a bicycle ride from Washington DC to Atlantic City.  It was amazing to see him doing something like this and in all the pictures I saw of him he was smiling.  The program he went through is called Ride2Recovery (R2R) and is viewed at  They do sevearal events during the year and all participating wounded warriors ride for free.  R2R sponsors the wounded warriors and pays for all food, hotel rooms, etc. It is not just wounded warriors that get to ride.  Anyone is welcome.  But, for those that are not wounded warriors there is a donation requirement.  Some may think of it as an entry fee, but it is a donation to the R2R organization so it can fund these wounded warriors to ride for free.  There is a ride coming up from 6-13 September from Boston, MA to Ft Lee, VA.  My brother-in-law is riding in this one as well and any of you who know me very well know I love to ride.  I want to participate in this ride to support my brother-in-law on his road to recovery.  After talking to him and seeing the pictures I believe this is a great cause and awesome way to get our wounded warriors rehabilitated.  The normal donation to ride in one of these events is $3000.  Since I am active duty and Tony is riding in the event my donation has been cut by half to $1500.  Even though I only have to raise $1500 to ride, my goal for donation is the full $3k.  It is for a great cause in helping fund the R2R effort.  Your donations are very much appreciated and are going to a very worthy cause of aiding our wounded warriors!  Thanks
