Update On Jay Blanchard’s Ride for American Widow Project
Jay Blanchard's coast to coast bike trip to raise awareness and money for the American Widow Project is in its third week. The latest update from Jay says the race is tougher than he expected and he's not covering as many miles as he thought he would, but despite all the obstacles he's had to face already he finds strength from the heroes he's honoringr expected\ eIt's an organization that provides the kind of help military widows and their families need after the tragedy of losing their loved one.
Since this is an unsupported ride, it means that no support vehicles can accompany him along the way. Jay has to fend for himself against the weather, fatigue, hunger and any other obstacle that he may have to face and he's faced a number of them already.
His goal is to raise $100,000 on what he's calling his Ride 4 Widows. You'll be able to follow along on his journey and track his daily progress at his Ride 4 Widows website. It's where you can also make a donation.
