May 18th Healing Ride Train-Up Event Recap

On Saturday, May 18th, the Pittsburgh Warriors, friends, and supporters took to the Montour Trail starting at mile 8.5 at Altered Genius Trailside Taproom and ending at mile 19.5 for a 22-mile morning ride dedicated to raising awareness of the the national statistic of 22 veteran suicides a day. The event was catered by Bar 31, which is owned by none other than Penguins goalie alum Kenny Wregget.

We dedicated today's ride to Cpl Lester Roque, a combat medic killed in action in 2007 in Afghanistan. The Pittsburgh Warriors annual Healing Ride fundraiser will take place from June 15-22, during which a group of cyclists will ride 334.5 miles from Point State Park in Pittsburgh, PA to Mile 0 of the GAP and C&O Towpath trails in Washington D.C. Each day's ride will be dedicated to a fallen soldier. During the ride, we will be raising awareness of the 22 veteran suicides a day and hoping to gather donations for the Pittsburgh Warriors to continue our mission of helping disabled veterans #HealThruHockey.

Altered Genius is also running a special beer release in support of Pittsburgh Warriors Hockey. Sales from Hero, a light balanced pale ale, for the months of May and June will benefit Pittsburgh Warriors.
