GE Veterans Network Partners with Ride 2 Recovery

Ride to Recovery

The GE Veterans Network is pleased to announce a unique partnership with Ride 2 Recovery that will help enhance the lives of healing heroes. The partnership combines the passion, commitment and national reach of the GE Veterans Network with Ride 2 Recovery’s broad range of cycling-based programs to raise awareness and aid in healing for veterans suffering from various conditions, such as Post Traumatic Stress (PTS) and Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI).

Under this partnership, the GE Veterans Network will provide support for Ride 2 Recovery’s full range of programs, including volunteering, fund raising, and participating in Challenges, Honor Rides, Project HERO and special events in various locations across the U.S. The partnership will also benefit from ongoing research that GE is conducting on PTS, TBI and concussion prevention.

“The GE Veterans Network’s purpose is to SUPPORT, HIRE and GROW veterans across GE. As such, the GEVN is committed to the ongoing support of those serving and those who have served our nation,” said Roy Gozum, Regional Executive of Commercial Operations at GE Aviation and one of the Network’s national co-leaders. “Ride 2 Recovery’s goal of helping veterans enhance their abilities to lead healthier, more active lives is a perfect match for the GEVN, and we look forward to growing this partnership at a nation level.”

Ride 2 Recovery supports physical and psychological rehabilitation programs for injured veterans featuring cycling as the core activity. From one-day Honor Rides to multi-day long-distance Challenge rides, Ride 2 Recovery raises money to support its Project HERO cycling programs at military and VA locations around the U.S. to help healing heroes overcome obstacles they face. The programs help injured veterans heal through the challenge of cycling using custom adapted bicycles, hand cycles, recumbents, tandems and traditional road bikes.

Stay connected on Twitter @GEHiresHeroes and on our GE Veterans Facebook page on as we conduct kickoff events during November around the nation where the GE Veterans Network & Project HERO have a common footprint.
