U.S. Army veteran cycles across America, raising money for injured vets
YUMA, AZ (KUSI) – Experienced cyclist and army veteran Dave Parramore left Ocean Beach last week kicking off his Ride Across America tour to raise support and awareness for injured veterans and their families through the Wounded Warrior Project.
Parramore’s goal is to raise $100,000 and thus far he has raised more than $12,000.
The retired army colonel joined Good Morning San Diego from Yuma, Arizona on his way to his home in St. Augustine Beach on the east coast of Florida.
Parramore has served 26 years in the U.S. Army and completed a nearly 500-mile journey last February from St. Augustine Beach to Key West in honor of the Wounded Warrior Project.
