Nalls embarks on Face of America 110-mile Bike Ride

On April 27, King George High School softball player (pitcher, outfielder), Savannah Nalls and her mother, Wendy will embark on their third World T.E.A.M. Sports (The Exceptional Athlete Matters) Face of America 110-mile bike ride, from Arlington to Gettysburg, Pa. The ride commemorates the U.S. military by honoring active duty, disabled, and able-bodied American veterans.
Nalls is also active during the off-season with travel softball, as a member of the East Coast Diamond 16u Travel Team.

During the two-day (April 27-28) journey, riders will stop every 15 miles to rest and hydrate with water, and energy related foods. On the final day, riders will bond, and celebrate their ride with a traditional party.

“Face of America is definitely the most heartwarming and eye opening event that I have ever participated in,” Savannah said. “I’m so thankful to be a part of this experience, and honored to be riding for the people that risked their lives for this beautiful country.”

While her father will not be able to make the ride this year, Savannah and her mother will celebrate the seventh year that their family has participated in the event.

The Nalls family has instituted their own brand of grass roots fundraising by asking everyone to go online to http://nallsfaceofamerica2013.shutterfly.com.  With a donation to the Nalls family link, contributors will be given a non-copyright photo. In addition, the local business community has been supportive of the ride. Business members include BikeWorks Bicycle Shop, Hazel Homes, LLC, HDT Engineered Technologies, Whelan’s Marina, Kimbles Auto Sales, Inc., Professional Plumbing Solutions, Inc., C&S Auto Repair, Inc., and Acoustical Panel Systems, Inc.
The celebrated veteran bicycle ride began 11 years ago. The inaugural event began as a cross-country ride in the summer of 2000, and later transitioned into serving as the official 9/11 commemorative ride from Ground Zero in New York to Washington, DC.

The ride is a unique opportunity for veterans to share stories with civilians, and active duty military. With 500 participants, and a camaraderie-based theme, the ride continues to draw and inspire many returning riders each year.

The ride is essential to honoring recently disabled veterans by helping them integrate back into society. “I really recommend that everyone should go out and do this,” Wendy Nalls said. “You don’t know what you’re missing until you’ve experienced it.”
