The Veterans Administration in Boise, ID, is seeking volunteers who own snowmobiles and disabled veterans who are interested in participating in the 2018 Disabled Veterans Snowmobile Ride.
Veterans must be at least 30 percent service connected disabled, as rated by the Department of Veterans Affairs. Disability does not need to be combat related in order to participate. Veterans will be chosen on first-come, first-serve basis. Transportation to the mountain will be provided for those who need it.
Volunteers will be riding coaches to a disabled veteran(s) and be willing to bring two snowmobiles or more to the ride; one for the volunteer and one for a veteran(s). Volunteers would be paired with a disabled veteran throughout the day and be able to offer them riding assistance, coaching, moral support, etc., so that they have an enjoyable day on the mountain.
The volunteers’ snowmobiles should be fairly new, in good operating condition and full of gas/oil and ready to go. The more volunteers who sign up, the more disabled veterans who can taken snowmobiling. If you as a volunteer are representing a business or organization please Josh Callihan know so he can include your logo on the ride poster and t-shirts.
The ride date is March 10, and we will be riding from Francie Wallace trailhead in McCall, ID. Lunch will be provided free of charge to all participants.
Please call to sign up and for any questions you have.
