Veterans to Receive Support from Oklahoma MX Riders
Ride Day Aims to Provide Aide for Recovery
Wellston, OK - Reynard Raceway is holding the second annual Warrior MX Ride Day on September 7, 2013. The ride day will host appearances from professional motocross rider Trey Canard, along with Robbie Reynard, up and coming professional rookie Colt Nichols, and support from Justin Bogle, presented by Warriors for Freedom Foundation and Reynard Raceway.
Proceeds from the event will benefit the Oklahoma based Warriors for Freedom Foundation. A non-profit, tax-exempt organization that provides support to our nation’s heroes and their families in the areas of outdoor activities, scholarships, legal assistance, mental health and wellness as well as promote awareness of Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD), Traumatic Brain Injuries (TBI) and Combat Stress Reaction (CSR) in partnership with Real Warriors Campaign, Folds of Honor Foundation and other military non-profit organizations.
“Oklahoma residents have provided this country with strong military personnel, professional motocross riders and unparalleled patriotism,” says U.S. Army Veteran Josh Massey, Chairman of the Warrior MX Ride Day.
“As retired Army and former amateur motocross rider, we hope to bring military, motocross and patriotism together to raise awareness and support to help those who are fighting for our freedoms,” says Massey. “With Professional Motocross riders Trey Canard and Justin Bogle in our court, we think this event will provide a fun atmosphere for both riders and fans alike,” Massey says.
The founder of the Warriors for Freedom and retired Army Major Ed Pulido knows the impact of assistance for Oklahoma’s military families. Pulido served nearly 19 years in the Army and was injured by an improvised explosive device (IED) in 2004.
“Warriors for Freedom in partnership with Folds of Honor is making immediate and lasting impacts everyday across Oklahoma and the country,” says Pulido. “This event will help us make an even more dramatic impact right here in Oklahoma,” Pulido says.
The Warriors MX Ride Day will be open for all ages of riders beginning at 10am. The event will offer auction items and autographed memorabilia.
