The 'Hooked on Healing Veterans' Motorcycle Ride is a special fundraising Motorcycle Ride specifically to benefit those American service veterans who have returned from deployment and find themselves either homeless or injured and in need of physical, mental, or spiritual rehabilitation. These men and women have gone beyond the call of duty to serve and protect America, to keep us safe. It is now OUR TURN to serve them, to help them heal, to assist them in coping with the return to normal lives.
