Starting June 9th, US Army veteran Kevin Mincio and entrepreneur and philanthropist Matt Sauri will cycle west-to-east across America. This 95-day, 4,200 mile journey furthers a mission of supporting families of fallen soldiers through the work of The Team Jesse Foundation, founded in the memory of SSG Jesse L. Williams, Kevin's comrade in the 5-20 Infantry Regiment, who gave the ultimate sacrifice fighting for his country in April of 2007 leaving behind wife Sonya and one-year-old daughter, Amaya, now age four.
The ride begins at SSG Williams' grave in Santa Rosa, CA on Jesse's birthday and ends at Ground Zero, the site of the World Trade Center, on the tenth anniversary of the September 11th attacks that motivated Mincio to enlist. Along the route, Kevin and Matt will visit the children and families of fallen soldiers and will stop at the US Naval Academy, Arlington National Cemetery, and the Gettysburg Battlefields.
On Thursday, April 14, 2011, starting at 6:30PM, in honor of the fourth anniversary of SSG Williams' death, and in support of the Team Jesse Ride, join us at Kells Irish Pub at Pike Place Market in Seattle to pay lively tribute to Jesse and to the many others who've given everything serving in America's armed forces.
A suggested $10 donation to The Team Jesse Foundation in honor of The Ride will help fund educational scholarships and support to families of fallen US soldiers. In addition, we'll host a silent-auction with packages including Mariners tickets, a three-hour wine and cheese cruise on Lake Washington, an Xbox360 with Kinect, and a nutritional therapy session from Synergy WellnessNW.
Join us in celebration and giving Tant Que Je Puis: To the Limit of Our Abilities.
