Dear Ole Miss Family and Friends,
Our second annual AmTrykes in Action Race on Sunday, Oct. 2, was a great success. We had eight competing teams. Our relay race consisted of eight-person teams racing their team tricycle 75 laps around The Circle drive in the heart of the Ole Miss campus. The Cycling Club came in first place with a race time of 1 hour, 21minutes, Sigma Chi fraternity came in second place with 1 hour, 23 minutes, and Army ROTC came in third place with 1 hour, 24 minutes. At the end of the race, each team presented their AmTryke tricycle to a grateful veteran.
"I can ride my bicycle again. I can ride relaxed, without being crunched over, and it is easy on my knees. Thank you!"
John Norfolk, retired Army/National Guard
We have raised 77% toward our goal of $10,000. We need your help this week to raise the remaining $2,248 to make it to 100%. For every $850 we raise, we are able to purchase one AmTryke and give it to a deserving veteran. Your involvement and support of this event will help to give veterans independence and a healthier lifestyle. Our community’s contributions to the AmTrykes in Action race will be recognized at the 2016 Ole Miss Football military appreciation game on Nov. 5.
