Wallis Independence Ride – 11.02.13
On November 2nd, 2013 a group of about fifty severely injured veterans and caregivers from across the country will descend upon the small town of Wallis, TX located on the western outskirts of Houston, to participate in the 7th Annual Wallis Independence Ride. Coordinated by the Schlumberger Cycling Club, the event has been organized for the past six years in order to raise funds and awareness for the Independence Fund, a veteran run non-profit organization that assists injured troops from the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan.
Since it’s inception in 2007, the Indy Fund (www.independencefund.org) has distributed more than $1.75M in grants and services to qualifying veterans, to include the purchase of robotic wheel chairs, track chairs and custom built road cycles for injured veterans as part of its mission.
The veterans have given their all for our country. Now it’s our turn to give back. Come out and join us and in doing so help them to regain some of their lost independence.
