Injured Veterans To Cycle 490 Miles From Houston To Arlington For The 2014 UnitedHealthcare Ride 2 Recovery Texas Challenge

More than 200 injured veterans and their supporters will set off Sunday, March 23, on the UnitedHealthcare Ride 2 Recovery Texas Challenge, a seven-day, 490-mile rehabilitative ride from Houston to Arlington, concluding at AT&T Stadium, home of the Dallas Cowboys.

Texas Challenge cyclists will start their journey in Houston at the Marriott Hotel (255 N. Sam Houston Pkwy E) and ride through central Texas with overnight stops in College Station, Georgetown, Fort Hood, Waco and Cleburne. The ride will end in Arlington Friday, March 28. To see daily stops and events along the route, or to sign up for the Texas Challenge, visit https://www.ride2recovery.com/event.php?ID=532.

“Ride 2 Recovery has been such a tremendous help in my healing that I am always recruiting other soldiers to join me,” said U.S. Army SSG Kennetta Gunns, who is based at Fort Hood. “I ride my bike a lot on base and tend to walk around in my R2R riding gear. When people ask me why I'm wearing my R2R gear, I send them to the Adaptive Reconditioning program to help them on their journey of healing.”

On March 29, riders will participate in the third annual Honor Ride - Clay Hunt in Fort Worth, which honors the service, values and memory of Houston native Sgt. Clay Hunt, a sniper with the U.S. Marine Corps who served in Iraq and Afghanistan. He fought his own internal battles against the physical, emotional and psychological effects of war before taking his life two years ago.

The Honor Ride is a one-day, noncompetitive ride that is open to injured veterans and the general public. Participants have a choice of three distances - 23, 35 or 65 miles - all of which begin and end at Cooper’s BBQ in the Fort Worth Stockyards. For more information on the Honor Ride, visit https://www.ride2recovery.com/honorRide.php.

“We encourage Texans along the route to come out and wave their flags and cheer on these extraordinary veterans and supporters. UnitedHealthcare is honored to help make this event come to life,” said Tom Quirk, CEO, UnitedHealthcare of Texas.
