Indian Motorcycle x Veterans Charity Ride expands with motorcycle therapy events
By: Dave McMahon
The 2022 VCR program will introduce an entirely new program structure, as the organization will host 10-12 new and returning veterans at three different multi-day motorcycle therapy events. Many veterans attending are amputees, paraplegics, suffer from Post-Traumatic Stress or other challenges veterans face after leaving the military. Each new veteran will pair with mentors who have already been through VCR’s motorcycle therapy program and receive one-on-one support to help their transition back to civilian life.

Our Veterans Deserve Motorcycle Therapy
The Veterans Charity Ride (VCR) has just acquired its usual trusty sponsor for 2022 – and Indian Motorcycle® is more than happy to be a part of the non-profit’s 8th Annual Therapy Program for vets.
The program will purportedly involve 10-12 amputees, paraplegics and victims of PTSD – all veterans from our good country – that will be matched up for one-on-one treatment that includes mentors and fellow vets that have previously completed VCR’s program.
Indian Motorcycle® Announces Sponsorship of the Veterans Charity Ride (VCR) for 8th Annual Therapy Program.
Indian Motorcycle® has just announced its proud support of veterans around the country by once again stepping in as the sponsor for the veteran-centered, non-profit organization known as Veterans Charity Ride (VCR).
This is a stupendous step, especially since the sponsorship in question will cover the use of motorcycles to “rehabilitate and support veterans returning from combat.”
So what does 8th annual therapy program entail?

Indian Motorcycle and the veteran-focused non-profit Veterans Charity Ride have partnered up for several years to help veterans upon their return to civilian life. 2022 will be the biggest program yet, helping more veterans at one time than ever before. Three multi-day motorcycle therapy events are planned for the 2022 season, marking the eighth annual Veterans Charity Ride events.
