How did you learn about Project Hero:

Ryan Creel and I met at a veterans winter retreat in January 2011. Over a beer for him and a few too many red bulls for me, he told me of this awesome organization Ride2recovery/Project Hero. So that night I went and sat on my computer and fell in love at first sight. I registered for every ride that year and the rest is history. Love, Family, Resiliency, and a new passion to assist in the saving of my life!!!!
