On Sunday, November 12, corporate sponsor Tire Pros and its dealers united in their mission to mobilize our wounded veterans and raise money for The Independence Fund, a nonprofit organization that provides all-terrain mobility devices and other services to disabled veterans. Supporters and participants of the ride helped severely wounded veterans regain their independence and experience activities they were previously unable to enjoy. The money raised through the ride gives disabled veterans the opportunity to get back outside and enjoy doing the things they love through a variety of mobility devices, each completely customized according to the veteran’s injuries, lifestyle, and family goals. The Independence Ride featured a 62-mile, 25-mile,\ 8-mile, and 3-mile ride throughout the morning. The rides ranged in routes from Lake Sherwood to a loop through San Fernando and Simi Valley to Agoura Hills. Each ride featured rest stops at the various Tire Pros locations, which offered water, Gatorade, and protein snacks.
