WHEELERS FOR THE WOUNDED
…benefits specifically for…
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
“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.
