WWP Alumni from all over the United States were in Phoenix last week to participate in Soldier Ride Phoenix 2014.  Soldier Ride is a four day cycling opportunity that brings WWP Alumni together with other Alumni helping rebuild their confidence to overcome mental and physical obstacles and gain their independence back.  This event is typically four days filled with many miles on a cycle along with activities for physical health and wellness.

Their activities for physical health and wellness brought them to SpoFit this year.  Over 50 Alumni’s were able to participate in sit volleyball, wheelchair basketball and rock climbing.  Although the alumni were a little tired from the bike ride earlier in the day, they enjoyed the activities that perhaps they would not have tried had it not been for Soldier Ride and SpoFit coming together.

SpoFit is thankful for the opportunity to serve these men and women during such an extraordinary weekend.  SpoFit also thanks all the volunteers for coming in to lend a hand, especially the Banner Wheelchairs Suns coach Dan Clemente and player Paul Rodriguez.  You can find out more about WWP visiting their website at www.woundedwarriorproject.org.
