Warriors Selected for 6th Annual W100K Mountain Bike Ride Hosted by President George W. Bush

September 7, 2016

Dallas, TX (September 7, 2016) – From September 29- October 1, President George W. Bush will host the 6th annual Warrior 100K (W100K), a 100-kilometer mountain bike ride for United States military personnel seriously wounded or injured since September 11, 2001. This year’s ride will take place at President and Mrs. Bush’s Prairie Chapel Ranch in Crawford, Texas.

The Bush Institute’s W100K spotlights the role of sport in recovery for our post-9/11 veterans and honors their bravery and sacrifice.

While at this year’s Invictus Games in Orlando, FL, President Bush hosted a Symposium on the Invisible Wounds of War, such as post-traumatic stress and traumatic brain injury, an event that coincided with the George W. Bush Institute’s launch of its Veteran Wellness Initiative. Committed to addressing the issues our post-9/11 veterans face, the Bush Institute will release a policy report later this fall that makes recommendations on treating the invisible wounds of war. 

The Invictus Games Team U.S.A. Captain, Will Reynolds, a 3-time medal winner, will participate in this year’s ride.  Patty Collins, a Paralympian competing at the Paralympics in Rio De Janiero, will also join the group.  In total, 17 warriors will join President Bush on the three-day ride.  They include:
