A Message from John Wordin and Ride 2 Recovery

January 01, 2011

Ride 2 Recovery LogoThanks to the recent WSJ article written by Karl Rove asking Americans to donate to the Ride 2 Recovery program, more than 150 people donated almost $20,000 (the donations are still coming in) to the program. These donations make a difference in the lives of our injured veterans.

With the money received over the past day and a half, Ride 2 Recovery will be able to provide a special R2R simulator for the warriors taking part in the Project HERO (Hospital Exercise Rehabilitation Opportunity) indoor/outdoor cycling program at Bethesda National Military Hospital. The simulator was to be cut due to a lack of available funds. R2R hopes to bring Project HERO to more hospitals in the future.

The simulator is a valuable tool to measure the progress of the wounded warriors taking part in the program and will be featured as part of the rehabilitation room built for a injured veteran for a ABC show to air in February. (the simulator measures power, speed, torque output of each limb, heart rate, cadence, etc) and is fully programmable.

For a quad amputee like Marine Todd Nicely, it will allow him to improve the strength, fitness, and power of his residual limbs. This = mobility, health, self esteem, = Life.
