WHEELERS FOR THE WOUNDED

…benefits specifically for…

 PURPLE HEART RECIPIENTS

Wheelers for the Wounded Texas is a wonderful non-profit organization that partners with Chapter 1919.  Our goal is to bring Wounded Warriors and their families to an all day event to honor them and give them a chance for an adventure of a lifetime.  The event is normally at Hidden Falls Park (between Austin and Marble Falls) and takes place the first Saturday in May.  There are lots of activities for family fun and fantastic food.  Each family is designated a vehicle and driver to take them on any course they choose.  The trails range from scenic to heart-stopping adventures up the steep sides of mountains.  No matter their choice of trails the adventures take them to another world where their problems are forgotten and true fun for everyone.

 

“Wheelers for the Wounded” has asked Chapter 1919 to serve the lunch on Saturday (same as last year’s event, but not everything in the schedule will be exactly the same), and very kindly gives us billing as one of the hosts.  Although primarily for Wounded Warriors (and their families) from hospitals at Ft Hood and San Antonio, Chapter 1919’s Patriots and families are invited to participate in the off-road trail rides and other events in the afternoon.

Chapter 1919 also partners with Wheelers for the Wounded in the Purple Santa event held every year in December at Ft. Hood. Wheelers hold fund drives to collect toys for hundreds of children at this event, toys are then given to the children by Chapter 1919's Purple Santa. Chapter 1919 will also cook for this event.
