The Honor Run 2009-09-01 THE HONOR RUN IS COMING THROUGH COLORADOWE NEED YOUR HORSEPOWER BECAUSE AMERICAS HEROS NEED YOUR HELP!The Honor Run is a Coast-to-Coast motorcycle run raising attention and funding for Fisher House Foundation programs supporting our returning injured military and their families during prolonged in-hospital and rehab stays. Check out the video at: www.fisherhouse.org/aboutUs/video.shtml. The good news--great survival rates from Iraq/Afghanistan. The bad news--many challenging life altering health and trauma issues beyond what 'the system' can support. Todays technology mercifully moves an injured soldier from battle field to fully-equipped hospital in less than an hour. This means the number of amputees we bring home from war has skyrocketed over previous conflicts. One in four injured soldiers now come home with a traumatic injury of some kind. And the hospitals they come home to, while better equipped to handle them, are often ill-equipped to provide for their families. What can we do? Heres what we can do.Guinness World Record holder adventure motorcyclist and inspirational speaker Dave Barr will lead the ride from the Viet Nam Memorial in Washington DC to final festivities in California. Dave is a double amputee Marine with an inspiring message for anyone wishing to move their life from "I cannot" into "I can!At this writing, nationally The Honor Run is taking on a life of its own with cool planned events and entertainment at all the stops across the country. Harley dirt track racing in Indy--maybe a shot at taking your own bike on The Magic Mile! A reception and party in Denver. A whole casino and party in Mesquite NV. And the final party and reception at Oakley World Headquarters in California with Actor, Gary Sinise' band. The list goes on. The Honor Run is gathering steam and you can be a part of the excitement, and help do something for our injured veterans.
