Diamond Posse Women Riding for Fallen Hereos
Wednesday, April 7, 2010
The Diamond Posse wants to help out our men and women who serve in the Armed Forces and is looking for sponsors for their upcoming benefit ride.
I’m proud of this great country that I live in and have the utmost respect for the men and women who serve in the Armed Forces. So when I heard about this brave group of women riders who are trying to give back to those who selflessly serve our country, I figured their plight was worthy of passing on.
The Diamond Posse is a group of five women who plan on riding their Harley-Davidsons
for 1500 miles in seven days to raise money for the Fallen Heroes Fund
. The group’s mission is to ‘give hope and encouragement to veterans who are facing challenges from having served.’ They want to raise public awareness of the challenges our veterans face on a daily basis.
It’s an eclectic group of women, including Cat Hammes, an ICU RN who lost her left leg in a motorcycle accident and Eldonna Lewis Fernandez, a retired USAF MSgt. that served for 23 years and has had to deal with Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) personally.
The Diamond Posse will be riding from San Antonio, Texas to Milwaukee, Wisconsin from May 16-23. Their final destination is the Celebrate Women event at Harley-Davidson. They will be stopping at four veterans hospitals along the way and will participate in the Honor Ride with LZ Lambeau on May 21st. All proceeds the Diamond Posse raises will go to The Fallen Heroes Fund. The fund supports The Center for the Intrepid which provides treatment for vets with PTSD, traumatic brain injury, or who have suffered loss of limbs.
The Diamond Posse is seeking contributions of any amount and is also looking for sponsors. They are offering a great sponsorship opportunity for companies to have their brand visible on their chase vehicle for 1500 miles as they travel up I-35 for seven days. The combination of women on Harleys and the chase car tagged with sponsors is sure to attract the eyes of thousands. The Diamond Posse is also looking for sponsors for its Heart of a Military Woman book donation that they are coordinating in conjunction with the event.
It’s a great cause, so if anybody out there feels it in their heart to help out our sisters in the saddle, go to http://www.diamondposse.us/Home.html
