What a Great Connection

May 2nd, 2012

5-2-12US Olympic Athlete Liaison, Sherry Von Riesen played an integral part in my visit to the Warrior Games at the Air Force Academy today. Her work with Wounded Warriors and Paralympians has a big tie to these Warrior Games. This event has outgrown the Olympic Training facility and now takes place at the Air Force Academy in Colorado Springs. I pulled into the main gate of the Academy with The Kindness Bus with a very curious group of guards who waved me through to the Field House.
Today’s events were cycling, basketball and volleyball. These Hero athletes are so incredible. I thought I was in great shape from riding The Kindness Bicycle for the past year, that is until I saw the speed and power these men and women have. Attending this first day of competition made me proud of our great country.
What a great connection in so many ways.
