Brave Hearts

As we gear up for our annual ride to raise awareness for veteran suicide, Trail to Zero, it is necessary for us to plan to haul first aid kits, unlimited gear, promotional items, and most importantly our veterans.  From our experience, the past 2 years, it is critical that a Support Vehicle follow our riders for the full 20 miles per city carrying water & food for riders/horses, replacement gear, mounting block, medications and more.

WE have solicited bids from local Ford Dealers for a Ford Expedition. The vehicle suits our purposes year round. There is an extra urgency to this request because of a Trail to Zero event to be held in New York City on September 14.
