Meet the Riders
Participating veterans of the Sea to Shining Sea ride live with disabilities ranging from loss of limbs to blindness to Post Traumatic Stress. These veterans served America in wars from Afghanistan and Iraq to Vietnam.
At many major cities the route crossed, community and media events were held to publicize the event and allow the public to meet the team. The riders stopped at American military bases along the way, and connected with local communities of disabled persons in towns and cities.
At World T.E.A.M. Sports, “The Exceptional Athlete Matters.” Every participant in our events is exceptional. Disabled participants increase self confidence, are a model to other disabled citizens, and inspire the able-bodied.
