PHOENIX (Oct. 19, 2012) — Phoenix-based U-Haul, founding partner of Soldier Ride™, is reaching out to the Valley for support in saluting the 2012 Wounded Warrior Project® Soldier Ride Phoenix, as we welcome the Wounded Warriors participating on the ride to the Valley of the Sun.

For the fourth year in a row, Soldier Ride will be cycling through the Town of Paradise Valley on Friday, October 19th and U-Haul would like to encourage the Valley to show their support by making an online donation to “Team U-Haul” at https://store.uhaul.com/SoldierRide.  U-Haul will be matching all donations dollar for dollar.

In August 2012, WWP opened up a regional office in Phoenix in order to help reach out to the many Wounded Warriors and their family members who reside in the Valley. Tens of thousands of Wounded Warriors and family members receive support each year through WWP programs designed to nurture the mind and body, and encourage economic empowerment.

 “Wounded Warrior Project is thankful for U-Haul Company’s continued and generous support of Soldier Ride,” affirmed Wounded Warrior Project Executive Director Steve Nardizzi. “We believe strongly in the ability of rehabilitative activities to profoundly impact a warrior’s ability to heal in mind, body and spirit.”

“U-Haul is honored to salute these heroes who have made unimaginable sacrifices to defend our freedom,” stated Joe Shoen, chairman, U-Haul International, Inc. “These young people have sacrificed so much in duty to their country and yet they are still willing to give even more to support those who continue to serve. Soldier Ride is a way in which U-Haul is able to thank our veterans for their service, and we are thrilled to be able to do this.”
