Jack Wickes’ story of cycling more than 462 miles across the state of Iowa during RAGBRAI – the Des Moines Register’s Annual Great Bicycle Ride garnered both national and local news coverage on AOL.com, NPR, WQAD in the Quad Cities area of West-Central Illinois and Eastern Iowa,FOX59, CBS4 and RTV6. So far he has raised twenty three hundred dollars for HVAF.
“We appreciate those who have served our country, but there are those that really need our help,” says Jack. “In addition to their service, they just need to get back on their feet. This is about helping those vets that are down. They served our country and this is our way of giving back to them.”
