Wounded Vet Run

Hi All, JenniSixx here.
Today, I'm talking about Boston's 6th Annual
that occurred last weekend. 

“They fought, and we ride”- The motto for the run.
 The ride starts at Boston Harley Davidson in Revere, MA and goes thru the surrounding towns, ending at Suffolk Downs in East Boston, MA. 


Sadly,my phone was being SUPER silly and I only got a few pics.

Here they are.











Started in 2011, The Wounded Vet Bike Run was
inspired by Cpl. Vincent Mannion Brodeur.
He is one of the most severely injured veterans in the nation. 
Vincent is the recipient of the Bronze Star and Purple Heart.
Every year the run is dedicated to different vets.
 All proceeds raised go towards disabled veterans. 

This was one of the most amazing things
 I have ever seen. Over 8,000 bikers rode this ride.
It was awesome! 

Even if you aren’t a fan of motorcycles, it’s still quite the site to see.
 To me, one of the most important charities are ones helping veterans. 
They fought for us and no one deserves it more than them.
 They are the very reason why I am here writing this today. 

 It was a great day and I can’t wait for next year’s one!  
And maybe next year, I will be on a bike myself.

Best, JenniSixx
