UCF student Adam Christopher is making it his mission to bike all the way from Orlando to Los Angeles, all to benefit the Wounded Warrior Project.
When asked about why he chose to benefit the Wounded Warrior Project, Christopher said the kinds of people involved are the kinds of people he wants to help.
“I just think the values and mission of wounded warrior project align with who I’d like to help. I’ve actually been planning this trip for several years but never really had the opportunity to make it happen,” said Christopher.
Christopher said that growing up he was very patriotic and wanted to join and serve the military for four years after school. Unfortunately, he was diagnosed with Crohn’s disease and is now unable to join any branch.
Christopher has planned the entire trip himself and is getting a lot of help from friends and family.
“There’s been a lot of planning involved but since I made the announcement yesterday I’ve received an incredible amount of support. In a day I’ve raised over $250 combined within the wounded warrior project and gofundme accounts.”
