New York, NY (November 24, 2009) – Champion System is proud to announce a partnership with Wounded Warrior Project’s Soldier Ride as their official clothing supplier for 2010. Soldier Ride provides physical rehabilitation and emotional healing for wounded warriors through cycling. The segmented rides also raise public awareness for the needs of today’s wounded warriors. All participants are provided with the adaptive equipment they need to cycle. Inspired by the Wounded Warrior Project’s mission to honor and empower wounded warriors, Champion System made the decision to become the official clothing supplier for the 2010 Soldier Ride program, which will include nine segments in 27 cities across the country.
“Champion System was founded on my passion and my partners’ passion for cycling. We are all cycling weekend warriors and honored to be involved with Wounded Warrior Project’s Soldier Ride”, says Scott Kaylin, president of Champion System. “I am proud of our men and women in the armed forces and it’s great to be involved with a program that gives back to them,” continues Kaylin.
In addition to supplying the jerseys for their official rides, Champion System has developed an array of Soldier Ride gear and apparel for public availability. A percentage of the profits will be donated to the Wounded Warrior Project. Items for purchase include the official jersey, bib, wind jacket, wind vest, tech cap, and cycling gloves.
“Wounded Warrior Project is thankful for Champion Systems generous support of Soldier Ride,” said Steve Nardizzi, executive director of the Wounded Warrior Project. “We truly believe these types of adaptive sports activities greatly assist these warriors during their healing process.
