Man rides through Mississippi in support of Wounded Warriors Project

Kevin Head, riding for Wounded Warrior Project

Kevin Head is a local CEO from Salt Lake City. His company often gives to the Wounded Warrior Project, but recently he decided he wanted to do more. He wanted to be involved. 

So, Head set off on a 5,000 mile off road motorcycle trip to raise funds for the project.

“I am riding across America from the Atlantic Ocean to the Pacific ocean,” said Head. “I own a moving company and we move a lot of active military members so we have been able to see the impact on a military family when they are deployed, and we have also been able to see the impact when a soldier comes back injured.

The trip will take Head five weeks to complete and during week two he will make a stop in Tupelo, MS. His trip will conclude in Battle Rock Park Oregon.

“How I’m doing this is actually on dirt. I’m riding a single cylinder dirt bike,” said Head.

The ride is all about honoring those who have served our country by bringing awareness and raising money for the project.
