Indian Motorcycle is supporting three veteran charity events in 2022
Indian Motorcycle and the non-profit organization Veterans Charity Ride have partnered for several years to help veterans return to civilian life. 2022 will be the largest program yet, helping more veterans at once than ever before. Three multi-day mototherapy events are planned for the 2022 season, marking the eighth annual Veterans Charity Ride events.
The first VCR 2022 event will take place simultaneously in Moab, Utah, and Durango, Colorado, June 10-19. The second event will take place August 20-30, 2022 in Moab. The third and final VCR event for 2022 will take place in Moab and Park City, Utah from October 10-18.
At each event, between 10 and 12 new and returning veterans will participate in each multi-day mototherapy event. Veterans face unique challenges as they reacclimate to civilian life, which is what VCR focuses on with its events. As a veteran-led organization, experiential knowledge is there to support participants as strongly as possible.
Each of these motorcycle therapy events will consist of a multi-day ride with other veterans, providing opportunities for team building, sharing, and generally helping to process and navigate the many and varied emotional states that come of their experiences. Motorcycling can be extremely therapeutic and great for the mental health of riders in general, so why not use this great tool to help veterans meet their challenges?
“It has been a true honor to support such a life-changing program as the Veterans Charity Ride,” Indian Motorcycle Vice President Aaron Jax said in a statement.
“VCR’s growth is a testament to Dave and Sue Frey as they have made it their mission to positively impact the lives of the brave men and women who have sacrificed so much for our country,” he said. added.
The VCR organization was founded by Dave Frey, who is a veteran Army paratrooper. He wanted to create a unique and therapeutic experience for injured and amputee veterans that leverages the fantastic, life-changing experiences that motorcycles can bring.
