Clarksburg, MD (PRWEB) October 07, 2014
For almost 10 years Operation Second Chance has been assisting wounded veterans. Nearing their 1 millionth dollar raised to assist the soldiers and marines at Walter Reed Army Medical Center, OSC has made it their mission to assist the soldiers while they are at WRAMC as they progress back to their lives.
Liaison Cindy McGrew began visiting soliders at WRAMC, bringing them food, clothing, groceries and other things their families might need. Realizing the impact that she could make, she teamed up with Clark Wagner and the organizers of the bicycle Freedom Ride 2005 to create Operation Second Chance.
Ride Allegheny is a fundraiser of OSC in which cyclists begin riding in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania and finish in Gaithersburg, Maryland. Beginning on October 2nd, with the cyclists traveling 320 miles to Maryland, they will finish on October 5th. A whopping 90% of the money raised for Ride Allegheny will go to Operation Second Chance, and will help the soldiers while they are at WRAMC and also assist in their transition back to duty or civilian life.
