Florida to California - Dennis Mclaughlin, John Gerlaugh and Troy McLeheny will ride across the United States from St. Augustine, Florida to Camp Pendleton, California on recumbent trikes in the summer of 2012 to raise awareness and funds for our country’s wounded veterans. Although they will be riding specifically for the Injured Marine Semper Fi Fund, they will also ride to support and provide visibility for all of America’s veterans.

Dennis and John became interested in sponsoring a fund raising event for the Semper Fi Fund when they attended an awareness dinner on the USS Intrepid in New York City in 2011. They met several severely injured Marines and their families, and were completely inspired by their positive “Can Do, Don’t Pity Me” attitude. They left that evening with an increased desire to do more to actively support our nation’s war wounded and their families.

Please support this wonderful group of patriots on their fundraising page and follow them on their journey on their Facebook page.
