Mike's Carwash raises 16.5K for Ride 2 Recovery
Nov 23, 2016
On Veterans Day, all 17 Mike's Carwash locations gave away free Basic Washes to veterans and active military members. A total of 6,867 veterans vehicles were washed and $16,551.32 was collected in donations throughout the day.
The money raised will be donated to Ride 2 Recovery, a groundbreaking veterans program that saves lives by restoring hope and purpose. The donation will support the organization's Project Hero that hosts rehabilitation programs that brings the benefits of Ride to Recovery to more Veterans with one important goal: More riders riding more often.
"I am thrilled by the outpouring of gratitude our customers had in recognition of our Veterans. Through their generosity we were able to donate $16,551 which will be used by Ride 2 Recovery to make a difference in the lives of Veterans with the challenges they face adapting to life outside of service. Thank you to all who gave." says Greg Ries, vice president of Mike's Carwash.
