Supporting veterans one bike at a time

Posted: Updated:

MADISON (WKOW) -- Hogs for Heroes is a non-profit organization dedicated to healing the mental and physical wounds suffered by Wisconsin military veterans, through the therapeutic benefits of owning and riding a Harley-Davidson motorcycle.

On Wednesday, Kevin Thompson stopped by Wake Up Wisconsin to talk about the orginatizon and their goals.

The group has been busy all year organizing, raising funds, attending bike nights and meeting with Madison and statewide leaders as they get the charity underway.  The goal is raise funds to purchase motorcycles and gift them to deserving Wisconsin Veteran Heroes.

Thompson says he believes in the freedom of the road, the collegiality of riders and the pride and peace found in ownership can support the healing for those Veterans who have long enjoyed the passion for riding and now find themselves without means or ability to do so.
