San Diego, CA – Phoenix Patriot Foundation (PPF) in association with K38 Water Safety, K38 Maritime, and the AWA H2O Responders program is proud to announce the 2012 Purple Heart Patriots' Challenge. Military personnel who have received a Purple Heart in Iraq or Afghanistan are riding Kawasaki JET SKI® watercraft in a grueling trek through dynamic, unforgiving ocean conditions. The SoCal Watercraft Club is volunteering with logistical support at all four PPF stops. The club is an American Watercraft Club with over 100 members who enjoy fellowship throughout the state of California on Club gatherings, races and supporting charity events.
Dates: Saturday November 10, 2012 — Team Preparations
COMMENCE RIDE: Sunday, November 11, 2012 — 6:00 am Launch, Cabrillo Beach, San Pedro
Distance: 135 miles
Where: The Pacific Coast, San Pedro, California to the Naval Amphibious Base, CoronadoThese Patriots will cover 135 miles through cold, rough Pacific Ocean conditions. Four greeting stations will be available for the public to show their support of these warriors as they operationally integrate post-combat injuries. Our hope is to provide a vehicle and means by which they can realize that their capabilities are not limited.
The Purple Heart Patriots' Challenge is PPF's first-phase program utilizing riding Kawasaki JET SKI® watercraft to assist in rehabilitation, create a competitive mindset, and return to being comfortable in a new body transformed through combat injuries. Various military brethren will be riding alongside these Patriots—heroes united.
