Help us support the Wounded EOD Warrior Ride

Posted by Kathleen Smith

ClearedJobs.Net is again sponsoring and riding in the Wounded Explosive Ordnance Disposal Warrior Foundation’s (WEODWF) Undefeated 2-Day Bike Ride scheduled for October 8-10, 2010 in Southern California.

This year’s ride will have an increase of participants to 68, up from the inaugural year’s 37. Of these, 36 are active Explosive Ordnance Disposal (EOD) technicians accompanied by additional riders from all branches of the military. The group raised over $80,000 last year and has increased its goal to $150,000 this year.

The two-day ride is nearly 160 miles along Southern California’s coast- from Santa Monica to Liberty Station, San Diego, and raises funds to support Wounded EOD Warriors and their families. All proceeds go to WEODWF (www.woundedeodwarrior.org) which funds and supports military EOD families caring for their loved ones at military medical facilities across the country.

“This event brings recognition of both the sacrifices of our EOD heroes throughout the services, and of the foundation that is dedicated to providing much needed financial support to the warriors and their families. It also establishes a positive link between this dedicated group of individuals and their communities,” says Kevin Childre, LCDR, Executive Officer, EOD Training and Evaluation Unit ONE, U.S. Navy EOD. “This event provides an opportunity for the community to support our brave and dedicated warriors for their sacrifices. Every freedom we enjoy comes through the blood and sacrifice of our Wounded Warriors!”

  1. MAN! SAw all you guys out on the roads of San Diego yesterday and finally stopped to talk to your SAG van at the top of Torrey Pines to find out what the event was. SURE wish I’d known about it – what a great event and cause. Would have LOVED to be a part of it. As a VERY active and involved member of cycling community here in SD, please notify me of next events – I am SURE I can commit at least 10 to 20 if not more participants to your next ride!!!
    With much regards,
