Bike ride raises funds for Wounded Warrior Project


WAYCROSS, GA (WTOC) - A Waycross man is riding across the U.S. to raise money for the Wounded Warrior Project.


Jason Rogers flew to San Diego, CA,  so he could ride his bicyle back to St. Simons Island.  He is an Air Force veteran and has been riding bikes for more than 10 years.


He's aiming to raise $100,000 on the bike ride for WWP.  There is a Facebook page called Coast2CoastWarriorRide to help people spread the word, build support, and follow him as he rides across the country. 


There is also a website set up for anyone willing to donate or wanting to learn more about the ride at  There are two ways to donate. One way is to donate directly to the WWP by clicking here.  The second way is to donate to an account set up that covers expenses of the ride itself, which is found by following the provided PayPal link.  All funds donated to this fund that are not used on the ride will go directly to WWP. This account is set up and managed by Jamestown Baptist Church, where Rogers is a member. 


Donations can be made online or mailed to: Jamestown Baptist Church Warrior Ride, C/O Buddy Hersey, 3215 Beulah Church Rd., Waycross, GA  31503.
