Support wounded vets on a cross country ride

A view of the canal at Great Shiplock Park

This notice comes from Beth Weisbrod, Executive Director of the Virginia Capital Trail Foundation. If you’ve got time before work Thursday, this seems like a great way to spend it:

I wanted to let you all know about an opportunity to show some disabled vets a lot of love this Thursday morning (7/26) at 7:30 at Great Shiplock Park. A group of wounded warriors have been cycling across the country since Memorial Day, having started in San Francisco. Some of them are physically disabled, some have suffered traumatic brain injuries. There are even two blind soldiers on the trip. 

They’re coming into Richmond on Tuesday, and departing on their final push towards Va. Beach from Shiplock Park on Thursday. They’ve been getting huge receptions from Oregon to D.C. —  http://www.facebook.com/worldteamsports  — so it would be really great for Richmond to show its stuff. The mayor and the media will be there, so we’re really hoping for a huge crowd.
 
Here are the details:
When: This Thursday, 7/26. They are planning to depart at 8 am, so we’re asking everyone to come by 7:30.
Where: Great Shiplock Park, Pear & Dock St., downtown Richmond (where the Virginia Capital Trail ends)

About Andy Thompson

I was the Outdoors Columnist at the Times-Dispatch from 2007 to 2013, writing twice a week about mountain biking, fishing, hunting, paddling and much more. I live a 1/4 mile from the James River, close enough to see bald eagles soaring over my house on their way to find a meal. Pretty cool, eh?
