Hempstead To Welcome Wounded Warriors In Annual Soldier
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

Wantagh," said Councilwoman Angie Cullin.

these soldiers have given to our country," concluded Supervisor Kate
