Ron's Ride
Supporting the
Wounded Warrior Project
(TM)

Ron’s Ride in support of the Wounded Warrior Project™ (WWP) is a 1,200 mile, two week long, bicycle ride from the mountains of East Tennessee to the waters of Key West, Florida.  During the ride we will meet with, and ride alongside Wounded Warriors and supporters from clubs, organizations and individuals invited to participate in this event while raising money for the (WWP).


Ron’s Ride is a great way to both support the Wounded Warrior Project™  financially and draw attention to the needs of these returned Warriors who have given so much of their lives to our country. A group of bicyclists riding through small towns and cities along the way will attract attention and provide awareness to the Wounded Warrior Project™ . People will learn about the (WWP) and see that these Wounded Warriors are real people just like themselves.

Smoky Mountain Shaggers is a non-profit dance club that meets regularly in Knoxville, TN.  Each Spring they host the Smoky Mountain Boogie.  This year's event was held in Pigeon Forge, TN.  Dancers travel from all over the country for this three day event and participate in fund raising, dancing and games hosted by the club.  This year, the Smoky Mountain Shaggers raised $2,553.00 for donation to the Wounded Warrior Project(TM).  Now, with money in hand, the next step was to get the money to the Wounded Warrior Project(TM).  That’s when they heard about Ron’s Ride.  On Sunday, June 16, the Smoky Mountain Shaggers presented Ron Broyles(re: Ron's Ride), with a check representing the entire amount of $2,553.00 for the Wounded Warrior Project(TM).
