Lance Vaccaro Memorial Ride

By The ITS Crew

LanceVaccaroNavy SEAL Lance Vaccaro died from injuries suffered while  conducting parachute training operations near Marana, Ariz., March 6,

In honor of Chief Vaccaro, his friends and fellow teammates have organized the Lance Vaccaro Memorial Ride.

The cross-country ride begins in Virginia Beach, Virginia June 17, 2010 with a stop-over in Seward, Alaska.

Once in Alaska, the crew will participate in the Independence Day Festival, and run in the annual Mount Marathon Race.

Their return trip will take them back through Canada, finishing in Richmond, Virginia July 17, 2010.

The grueling daily schedule has them riding an average of 320 miles per day for the month long 9,978 mile excursion.

How You Can Help

The Lance Vaccaro Memorial Ride Fund is accepting donations via their Web site.

Phase 1 donations will cover the expenses of making the ride happen, and Phase 2 donations will go directly to the Naval Special Warfare Foundation.

Each day of the ride the crew will set up a donation station to raise funds for the NSWF.

Please help participate in this noble cause.
