MyMedic, home of the best First Aid Kits on the planet, announces its 4th year supporting Veterans Charity Ride (VCR). Veterans Charity Ride is a veteran operated non-profit organization that uses “motorcycle therapy” to help fellow veterans adjust to post-war life. Veterans (nominated through the VCR website) enjoy the therapeutic effects of motorcycle riding on an all-expense-paid cross-country adventure of a lifetime. The VCR motorcycle ride will begin in Moab, Utah, July, 28th and arrive in Sturgis, SD, on Friday, August 7th, 2020.
As a combat veteran myself, I understand the value of spending time with other veterans, especially on an adventure like this. To put it bluntly, civilian life can be boring for veterans; It’s a struggle to find something interesting. In battle, you build bonds and serve a purpose with your brothers and sisters that not many people can relate to. When veterans can be around one another, it helps satisfy that unexplainable urge to be back in combat. Participating in this adventure will fuel that sense of purpose again; these veterans will depend on each other on this journey in a way that doesn’t come easy in everyday life back at home.” Ryan Welch, President of MyMedic, stated as he explained why MyMedic has supported Veterans Charity Ride since 2016.
With any mission, First Aid is always a top priority, especially when traveling cross-country on a motorcycle. “Stuff happens when we ride; from bug bites, sunburn, road rash, and getting overheated. We love what MyMedic stands for, and they know firsthand, from their own experiences, what our veterans are dealing with when they transition back into civilian life. Their First Aid Kits have everything we need to keep us protected in an emergency and to keep us comfortable on the road.” Dave Frey, founder of Veterans Charity Ride.
VCR riders will ride with several MyMedic MyFAK’s, advanced MyMedic Solo First Aid Kits, and Rapid Medical tourniquets. Each veteran will also have a MyMedic Pandemic Medic Kit, which includes KN95 masks, hand sanitizer, and nitrile gloves, to keep them protected.
This year VCR is taking things a step further with its “service before self” initiative. This effort will directly offer support and appreciation for our nation’s first responders, who have been working the frontlines during the COVID-19 pandemic.
Veterans Charity Ride will be making PPE donations on behalf of MyMedic to first responders along their ride route in Moab, Utah, Craig, Colorado, and Sturgis, South Dakota.
