Hempstead To Welcome Wounded Warriors In Annual Soldier Ride

Hempstead Town Supervisor Kate Murray and Councilwoman Angie Cullin invite Hempstead Town residents to come out and show their support to combat-wounded veterans who are participating in the annual Wounded Warrior Soldier Ride on Friday, July 25.

The Wounded Warrior Project Soldier Ride is a rehabilitative cycling program for those injured in service. For many of these combat-wounded veterans, Soldier Ride provides the first steps in the return to an active lifestyle. In addition, the project aims to raise awareness and funds for the needs of wounded soldiers.

"For many of these brave servicemen and women, this event is part of their recovery process," said Supervisor Kate Murray. "It is important that we give our support to these courageous men and women."

The Soldier Ride will begin at Babylon Town Hall at 10 a.m. The riders will head along Merrick Road and are expected to pass through Cedar Creek Park in Wantagh around 10:56 a.m. They will follow the bike path along the Wantagh State Parkway to Jones Beach, continuing along Ocean Parkway to Cedar Beach Town Park. Riding is by invitation only. To view the event route visit

"I encourage residents to come out and cheer on these riders as they make their way through Seaford and into Cedar Creek Park in Wantagh," said Councilwoman Angie Cullin.

"I hope that neighbors will show their appreciation for the service these soldiers have given to our country," concluded Supervisor Kate Murray.
