How did you learn about Project Hero:  Bought a jersey online with US Coast Guard on it and it had R2R on it and I had no idea what it stood for. 2016, my family was visiting Colonial Williamsburg and saw a bunch of cyclists come down the Main Street wearing the same R2R logos. A year later I would ride the same ride. The rest is history and my life at the age of 53 would change forever.
