Ride 430 Challenge Fundraiser for Injured Military Members
Updated: Monday, October 7 2013, 10:41 AM EDT
ERLANGER, Ky (Liz Bonis) -- A man from Erlanger is proof that we all can do our part to support the men and women serving our country. This week he's taking a 430 mile bike ride to raise money for those who are wounded in action.
Medical reporter Liz Bonis shares how you can support him along the way in today's Medical Edge.
Matt Lambert's military career was cut short when he was wounded on the battlefield, "wasn't until then it realizes i lost both my legs".
It's just one of many reasons David Shulte says he joined the Ride 430 Challenge, "well, I never served the military I think is a great institution, everything, I believe we have, our freedom, to be here, is all because of our military, and we can't do enough for them."
This year the challenge has about 65 riders who will bike 430 miles across Arizona in the next few weeks. They raise money for those who are injured serving our country. "The military pays for a lot but they don't pay for things like hand bicycles, they don't pay to make your house handicapped accessible, they don't pay for vans," says Matt.
He rides as a challenge to meet his own goals, but he invites everyone to participate sort of along the way. On the Ride 430 site you can support a rider, "we hope to raise about three hundred and fifty thousand dollars."
That money supports those he meets, such as one mother he met. Her son was badly burned in battle, "He was in San Antonio where the burn hospital is, for more than 100 operations. Our group paid her mortgage, so she didn't have to choose between being with her son, and making a mortgage payment."
Many such as Matt Lambert continue to serve after injury, "I definitely wanted to continue to serve with my guys." It's why David Shulte continues to ride.
