This summer World T.E.A.M. Sports has organized a cross country bicycle ride for Wounded Warriors. Starting in San Francisco on Memorial Day, 18 Wounded Warriors will cycle almost 4,000 miles ending their epic journey across America in late July at Virginia Beach.
The Sea to Shining Sea Ride across America will be coming through Dodge City on June 26-28. The overall Sponsor for the event is State Family, and State Farm will be joined in its sponsorship by a dozen other firms and organizations nationally. Local sponsors from Dodge City include: State Farm agents Brad Lock, Rob Sowers, and Oscar Obando, Cargill, Western Beverage, Blue Star Mothers, VFW Post 1714, and the Dodge City Convention and Visitors Bureau.
These brave men and women will be welcomed and thanked by communities all along their route. We invite all of our community to come join our welcome line for these men and women from 3p.m. to 6p.m. on June 26, 2012, across the street from the Dodge House Hotel, and we also invite the community to send-off the Wounded Warriors on June 28, 2012 at 8 a.m. in between The Depot Theater Company and Central Station Club & Grill.
