A national veteran’s organization known as the Veteran Charity Riders will be passing thru Teller County on Tuesday, July 30. Their plan is to ride over Wilkerson Pass where they will be joined by the local Legion Riders and ride on into Teller County. They are planning to stop at the Crystola Road House for lunch around 12:00.
Veterans Charity Riders is a non-profit organization that delivers Motorcycle Therapy and additional life-changing, lifesaving holistic programs specifically designed to assist wounded and amputee combat veterans with their needs and the issues they deal with on a daily basis.
The Veterans Charity Riders activities have proven to helpful for veterans who are suffering from Post-Traumatic Stress (PTSD), anxiety, sleeping disorders, Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI), and problems with re-assimilation into civilian life. The Riders provide veterans a safe environment with fellow veterans and people they can trust, give them outdoor activities that are motivating, enjoyable, challenging and of interest to them, introduce them to and educate them on holistic healthy natural alternatives, and assist them with rehabilitating their own personal goals and purposes.
The end result of their program is a healthier and happier, more capable individual, who is now living life in a much better physical and mental condition, and able to help and support other veterans to do the same.
The Teller county community and all veterans are encouraged to welcome the Riders to our part of the Rocky Mountains, cheer them on when they pass or visit with them during their lunch stop at the Crystola Road House.
