Motorcyclists riding for veterans, especially those affected by PTSD

Ohio County

OHIO COUNTY, W. Va. (WTRF)-Motorcyclists are riding for those who put their life on the line for our freedom’s.

It’s the “DLR Mustang Horses for Heroes Ride”: the first of its kind at the Valley Harley-Davidson.

They’re bringing awareness to veterans, especially those struggling with PTSD… a special cause even close to Anthony Glessner’s heart.

“It means a lot to be able to do something like this and help people out. Think about it: they sacrificed time away with their families and everything else to go fight for our freedom, so if you’re able to do something like this, I think you should.”

Organizers say all the funds raised goes towards the DLR Mustang Ranch, where veterans go to get a horse to keep and train: a special program to help them cope with PTSD.

They raised about a couple hundred dollars so far. To donate yourself, call Valley Harley-Davidson at (304) 243-9300.
