As we bring our blog to a close and on behalf of (LtoR) Marisa Cherry & Chris Nolte (Long Island Electric Bikes), Marina Bello, Sean H. Hamilton and James O'Leary & Tony Ntellas of the Wounded Warrior Project, we now make this check presentation on behalf of all our amazing friends and family who supported our ride.
WELL WE MADE IT!!! We just returned home yesterday from our 350 mile, six day, DC to Pittsburgh bike trip. We want to let you all know how much your thoughtful donations meant to us.
Even though for one week Marina and I endured an unexpected 3 day heat wave, major exhaustion, 9-13hr ride days, major bumps, bruises and cuts, it was a constant remainder that we endured nothing compared to what many of our injured service men and women are going through now that they're home. Our wounded warriors are now seeking help in record numbers; many have lost their sight, lost a leg or lost an arm. This money you helped raise will mean the world to many soldiers that now need a prosodic leg, arm or seeing eye dog.
Most of these service men and women went into Iraq and Afghanistan combat with an admiral intention to help and thought they were doing what was right for our country. Now nearly half our soldiers who've served are asking for disability benefits from the Government. A VERY LARGE number of those soldiers are not being helped. This is where your donation towards the Wounded Warrior Project comes in.
With the Government (for one reason or another) turning their backs on them and their families, our soldiers need our support more then ever. Whatever peoples political beliefs might be these wounded soldiers shouldn't manage this alone and should not be forgotten. The money you gave shows that you care and will help make a difference.
Shorty we will announce the check presentation to the Wounded Warrior Project on your behalf.
It was our friends, family and listener donations that kept Marina and I going. We thank you and love you.
A special thank you to:
Chris Nolte at Long Island Electric Bikes (631.306.4542)

We are covering about 60 miles a day. So tough not to stop every where because its such beautiful country. Must complete with 6 days! Much love to all our friends who have supported our ride, 100% of your donation goes to: http://www.gofundme.com/4woundedwarriors
My wife Marina and I really need your help. We're biking for the Wounded Warrior Project starting July 15th, It's just going to be the two of us riding alone along the C&O Canal from Washington DC to Pittsburgh, PA totaling 350 miles while camping, in just six days.
For some of you not familiar with who I am, a little about myself. I'm Sean "Hollywood" HamiIton a radio personality currently syndicated on the Premiere Radio Network. I'm based out of New York City with my flagship station being Clear Channel's WKTU.
Our plan is to video blog the entire journey right here on GoFundMe. Our mission is to build awareness for our brave soldiers who fought for our freedom and safety and to give back to our Wounded soldiers. Outside of my wife not killing me we don't see a problem covering approximately 70 miles a day. We'll be peddle assisted with two amazing revolutionary bikes from E-Motion at Long Island Electric Bikes and not to mention physically fit with the help of the worlds leader in nutrition, weight loss and cleansing, Isagenix.
I know some of you who personally know us think that there is no way I could possibly go 6 days without an XBox or my wife Marina could never live without a hair dryer. Perhaps you know that both of us are Aries and both being incredibly hard-headed can't possibly last five days without breaking up somewhere along the way. Well... you might be right, it's definitely going to be interesting. This is why we will ONLY be collecting your thoughtful donation based on the miles we've covered.
I can guarantee you one thing, it's going to make for an interesting blog, so keep checking in nightly to see how we're doing (or not doing) along the way.
100% OF YOUR DONATION WILL GO DIRECTLY TO THE WOUNDED WARRIOR PROJECTAND WILL BE OFFICIALLY PRESENTED ON THIS BLOG. Thank you very much for your kind donation. ANY AMOUNT WILL HELP, MUCH appreciated.
