2016 Solidarity Ride Sponsor list to date

Sponsor list updated 4.19.16

Please take time to review our updated sponsor list.  You will notice that several are listed in underlined text.  I would humbly request you pay particular attention to these folks.  The ones underlined are the Striking Families who work for Verizon.  They are without pay and benefits with no relief in sight but they still have committed to co-sponsoring this bike run for our Veterans and putting the needs of their own families aside for the cause of our vets. They are walking lines all across the state to shed some light on the corporate greed that is crushing the middle class.  Going on Strike is perhaps the single most difficult decision a man or woman has to make but when you decide to say “I’m still in” and honor your commitments, that is really some kind of hero I can only hope to emulate someday.
