FORSCOM leaders bike in 2nd Annual Ride 2 Recovery Cyclefest
November 6, 2011
FAYETTEVILLE, N.C. (Nov. 6, 2011) Led by Lt. Gen. Howard B. Bromberg, deputy commanding general of U.S. Army Forces Command, and by Cmd. Sgt. Maj. Darrin Bohn, FORSCOM command sergeant major, members of the FORSCOM family were among the almost 200 able-bodied and Wounded Warrior riders in the 2nd Annual Ride 2 Recovery Cyclefest today.
They were there to demonstrate their support for wounded veterans. R2R fund-raising events support Spinning® Recovery Labs and outdoor cycling programs at Military and VA locations around the U.S. to help injured veterans overcome obstacles they face.
Cycling is an important part of the recovery and rehabilitation program for two reasons:
1. Cycling is an activity that almost all patients with mental and physical disabilities can participate, and
2. Participation in the Road 2 Recovery program helps speed up the recovery and rehabilitation process.
Cycling has reportedly proven effective in the rehabilitation of mental injuries as well as physical injuries.
