Minnesota Disabled Hockey is excited to provide veterans participating in the Wounded Warrior Project® (WWP) Soldier Ride® with an opportunity to try sled hockey on Friday, July 28.

The Soldier Ride is a multi-day bicycling event where a group of injured veterans will be challenged to push themselves physically and mentally as they manage visible and invisible wounds of war. And they won’t be doing it alone – they will move forward together, as a unit, just like during their military service. 

Opportunities to form meaningful relationships that help with long-term recovery are a key part of Soldier Ride. WWP will host various physical health and wellness training activities, including sled hockey, where warriors can connect with one another in relaxed environments.

Through its Minnesota Warriors and sled hockey programs, Minnesota Disabled Hockey provides opportunities for numerous veterans in Minnesota to be a part of a team and participate in a sport they love. These two simple components often play a critical role in assimilating back into civilian life. Minnesota Warriors Vice President Andrew Qualy goes so far as to describe hockey as his rehab.

Minnesota Disabled Hockey hopes that by offering the chance to try sled hockey the veterans participating, even those who aren’t from Minnesota, will be more aware of these type of opportunities and take advantage of them. Jerseys for the event are being provided by the United Heroes League.

Throughout the Soldier Ride, warriors will also get the chance to learn how they can connect with WWP’s other life-saving programs and services, which will empower them to live their lives on their terms. Thanks to generous donors, WWP offers all of its programs and services, including Soldier Ride, free of charge to the warriors, family members, and caregivers it serves.
