CRANFORD, N.J. - Chris Donaghy of Residex and Bruce Donoho of Bird-B-Gone have partnered to donate a handcrank competitive cycle to the Achilles Freedom Team of Wounded Veterans.

“Bruce and I would like to express our gratitude to the servicemen and women of the US military by giving back to those who sacrificed so much to keep the world free from tyranny,” said Donaghy.

The Achilles Freedom Team was founded in 2004 to introduce marathon racing to wounded war veterans as part of their rehabilitation.

This is the second handcrank donated by Residex in 2009 since partnering with the charity.  Both competitive cycles are stationed at the Walter Reed Army Medical Center in Washington, D.C.  Upon arrival at the hospital, wounded servicemen and women are encouraged by Achilles Freedom Team members to integrate the use of the cycles as part of their rehabilitation.  Despite their disabilities, many remarkable wounded veterans go on to incorporate competitive marathon racing into their lives. 

Residex expects to surpass their 2009 goal of raising $10,000 for this inspirational charity.  To help support our wounded American war veterans visit www.firstgiving.com/residex.
