We received this request from Boise VA Medical Center. If you can help, the contact information is included in the story.

We are recruiting volunteers for the Annual Disabled Veterans Snowmobile Ride happening on Saturday, March 14, in McCall, ID. We will ride from the Francis Wallace trailhead and have a hot lunch available for you and the veterans at the trailhead. You will be able to ride for a few hours in the morning, come back for a hot lunch and then go back out and ride after lunch or quit after lunch. It will be up to you and the veteran(s) you are paired up with.

We need volunteers to serve as riding coaches to the disabled veteran throughout the day. This means you should be able to bring at least two snowmobiles, one for yourself and one for the disabled veteran to ride. We will partner you with a disabled veteran who will ride with you on your snowmobile throughout the day. Both snowmobiles should be full of gas and oil and in good working condition.

Everyone is expected to be in the Francis Wallace parking lot/trailhead by 10 a.m .on March 14. If you are coming from the Boise area, we will be meeting at the Home Depot parking lot on the corner of Hwy. 55 and State Street from 7 a.m. to 7:30 a.m. to give veterans a ride and/or carpool with other people.

If you would like to help out and you can bring an additional snowmobile please call Josh at (208) 422-1054 or e-mail Joshua.callihan@va.gov to sign up/register for the Annual Disabled Veterans Snowmobile Ride. There will be more details to follow once you sign up, but feel free to ask any questions about the ride.
