PHOENIX PATRIOT FOUNDATION
The mission of the Phoenix Patriot Foundation CYCLING PROGRAM is to serve severely wounded veterans in realizing their cycling dreams by providing them with a welcoming community of support. With our sponsors, partners, and volunteers we will inspire, motivate, and empower our wounded veterans to reach their own finish line and become a specter of motivation and guidance for their communities, peers, and veterans nationwide.
GOALS / OBJECTIVES
The Phoenix Patriot Foundation CYCLING PROGRAM is devoted to providing wounded veterans the resources they need to achieve their cycling dreams and goals. We motivate and inspire our vets by providing them the equipment, guidance, coaching, and infrastructure to catalyze their journey. The PPF mountain bike team is comprised of a diverse network of active duty and retired Navy SEALs, civilian volunteers, sponsors, and corporate partners.
Through your donation, you directly affect the recovery and rehabilitation of wounded veterans by giving them the opportunity to reconnect with a passion and quality of life that may have been lost without your contribution to their journey.
We are happy and eager to discuss individual and corporate sponsorships at any level. If you would like to become a sponsor for the PPF CYCLING PROGRAM, please contact our marketing Director Audrey Dalton at email@example.com to discuss how you and your business can contribute to this truly noble cause.
A Enduring History . . .
The Phoenix Patriot Foundation mountain bike team was founded in 2010 when the NSW (Naval Special Warfare) Flyin’ Frogs mountain bike team decided to unanimously endorse the efforts of the Phoenix Patriot Foundation.
In its previous iteration, the team’s commitment to endurance racing has been rewarded with consecutive National Points Series Championships in 2008 and 2009. In 2011, the PPF MTB Team partnered with the So. Cal. Endurance Race organization and its founder, Jason Ranao, to bring the Phoenix Patriot Foundation’s message to a large, diverse, and passionate regional audience of racers, family members, and patriotic Americans. During the 2011 campaign, the team had a strong presence at each of the 12 hour races, along with a fantastic visit to the “Leadvillle 100″ mountain bike race.
Through our outreach and race participation, we have had the opportunity to inform other racers, support staff, and the public about PPF’s mission and the various avenues through which someone can get involved. Our intent is to grow our presence on the regional and national endurance racing calendar, hoping to make a repeat visits to the “Leadville 100″ and to expand and develop our fundraising and outreach activities.
