Cyclists travel 300 miles to raise funds for Ohio veteran groups

CINCINNATI, OH (FOX19) -

A group of cyclists are traveling more than 300 miles through Ohio to raise money for seven charitable organizations that provides services to military veterans and their families July 4 – 7.

The race began in Cleveland on July 4 and will end in Cincinnati on July 7 on the Ohio to Erie Trail, which extends through both cities.

Todd Reigle, founder of Honor Ride Ohio will be joined by military veterans Matt Miller (United States Marine Corps), Adrienne Corna (Ohio National Guard), Mick Karp (Army), Aaron Strange (Army) and Lt. Matt Leach.

"The bike ride is really the culmination of a year's worth of hard work and preparation," said Reigle. "Not only are we working hard to secure funding, but we train hard to prepare for the more than 300-mile journey. It's not easy, but it's worth it."

The charities that the riders will raise money for include Honor Flight Columbus, Ohio Warriors Scholarship Fund, Goodwill Columbus's Project Go, Canine Companions for Independence's Wounded Veterans Initiative, Ohio Combat Veterans and the Gary Sinise Foundation.

One-hundred percent of all donations will benefit these organizations. Last year, Honor Ride Ohio raised $15,000 for five veterans groups and has plans to double that amount this year.
