Tango Whiskey Ride
We are beyond excited to announce the Tango Whiskey Ride. The Tango Whiskey Ride is a virtual bike ride challenge during PTSD Awareness Month, spanning all of June, 2021. Forming the ride's host committee, we have come alongside Event Southwest and Xu Lab, each donating a portion of their earnings in order to actualize this event, in an effort to raise money to send selected military veterans battling PTSD and their families on an all-expenses paid trip to one of our national parks. All proceeds and fundraising from this event will go toward this mission. Serving as the net which will catch and facilitate all donations is 501(c)(3), The Together Project, founded by Brian Shotwell. The Together Project supports those with PTSD and their families through education, reflection, support and programming.
Utilizing a custom logging software which enables progress visualization on the TWR Participant Map as well as access to the event leaderboard, participants will have three virtual route options, the TWR100, the TWR300 and the TWR520. Each of these routes navigates some of our nation's most iconic wild places. (Yes, this software is Strava-compatible...we knew you were wondering.) Participants may ride anywhere, on any type of bike. Whether that be on an air bike (yikes,) a stationary bike, a mountain bike, a road bike or anything of the sort, it is most important that you just hit the saddle. You can even recruit a team and crush it together! In regard to all-important swag, depending on race entry, participants will receive custom-designed TWR apparel.
Below, we have attached the TWR website, where you can find all TWR information, including registration details, apparel bundles and route descriptions. In addition, we have linked the TWR YouTube page, housing a video detailing the story behind the TWR as well as a clear layout of the event's order.
Join us as we peddle toward further support of military veterans who are struggling with PTSD and strive to gift them and their families with a trip of a lifetime!
