May 01, 2013
Alpharetta, GA – The Scott Rigsby Foundation May 3 and 4 is teaming up with several Georgia businesses and Alpharetta organizations to bring back the annual Alliance Ride charity bicycle event and U.S. Handcycling races.
In its fourth year, the Alliance Ride honors U.S. veteran and active-duty soldierss from Operation Iraqi Freedom and Operation Enduring Freedom.
All of the proceeds from the event go toward the Georgia Warrior Alliance programs for health, wellness, education and employment opportunities for Warriors and their families as they transition back into their communities.
This year’s events will incorporate two U.S. Handcycle Federation events and a 25/50-mile bike ride with the inaugural Greater Atlanta Veteran Hiring Expo (called Invest In Our Vets) and a CrossFit Challenge.
All events will be held at the Verizon Wireless Amphitheater in Alpharetta.
With Alpharetta’s support of National Bike Month, the Department of Public Safety will provide a Bike Safety Station with youth helmet giveaways during May 4th events.
