Glen Lerner Gives Back Sponsors Project Hero Honor Ride 2018

Glen Lerner Gives Back is proud to have sponsored the annual Project Hero Honor Ride for 2018.

The Project Hero Honor Ride is a non-competitive cycling event where people who are active in the military, veterans, first-responders, and others all get to ride on a variety of trails, anywhere from 10 – 100 miles in length. Project Hero was founded in 2008, and it is a groundbreaking national non-profit organization dedicated to helping veterans and first responders who are affected by PTSD, TBI, and other injuries find resilience and joy in their lives.

Our own IT Manager, Jan Santiago, showed up to the November 10 event, along with over 750 other riders to the 62-mile-long course in Las Vegas. The trail began at the Clark County Government Center, went south down Las Vegas Boulevard, west around Red Rock Canyon, and finally downhill back to the start.

The Las Vegas Fire Department, its Honor Guard, and the Las Vegas Metropolitan Police all showed up to honor our veterans. The event began with the hoisting of the American flag between two fire trucks, and riders on nearly every type of bicycle began their ride by passing through twenty American flags at the starting line, symbolizing the average of twenty veterans who commit suicide on a daily basis because of PTSD.
