Phoenix 100-Miler**

December 3, 2016 - December 4, 2016

The Team Semper Fi Phoenix 100 Miler will take 35 service members on a 100-mile bike ride through Scottsdale, Arizona to aid in recovery by building community and camaraderie while learning bike-handling skills. This event takes place during the #DoubleDown4Vets campaign assisting in the challenge to raise $10 million by the end of the year, and it will be matched up to $20 million.

27 Team Semper Fi and 8 Team America’s Fund athletes will be led by LaVerne Lindsey of Bike Ride Arizona on a mentally and emotionally stimulating and cathartic tour of Arizona scenery while bonding with their fellow service members and learning skills that help in physical recovery.

 Team Semper Fi and Team America’s Fund – is the heart and inspiration of the Semper Fi Fund’s athletic program which provides “Recovery Through Sport™ ” and is an extension of the assistance we provide. The teams are made up of servicemen and women who have overcome significant challenges in their service to our country, and have embraced the fighting, athletic spirit on their road to recovery. They are an inspiration to us all, but more importantly, they are an inspiration to their fellow service members who are also recovering.

The Semper Fi Fund provides the team with coaches, specialized sporting equipment, entry fees, and travel expenses to athletic events. Athletes are also given the opportunity to receive high-level training from former and current Olympic and Paralympic athletes through a partnership with the US Paralympics.
