WILL DISCUSS RUNNING INDIANA TRAIL 100 TO RAISE MONEY FOR VETMOTORSPORTS
COLUMBUS, Ohio, April 6, 2015 – Purple Heart recipient Vince Corona will join VETMotorsports CEO Peter Cline as a guest on the 2 Wheel Power Hour Motorcycle Show on Tuesday, April 7.
Corona’s interview with Power Hour host Larry Ward will begin 6:00 p.m. EST and include discussions about Corona's experiences with VETMotorsports and his efforts to raise money for the organization by competing in the Indiana Trail 100 on April 25-26.
Corona, who served as a U.S. Army Ranger in the 82nd Airborne Division for five years, deployed twice to Iraq and Afghanistan and was wounded in the line of duty in 2007. He and fellow combat-wounded veteran AJ Arnett both will compete in the 100-mile trail race. The pair took up ultrarunning as a new challenge and a personal form of therapy after their tours of duty.
In addition to training for the race, Corona and Arnett started Crowdrise (https://www.crowdrise.com/100milesforVETMotorsports) and Facebook (https://www.facebook.com/VinceandAJrun100miles?fref=photo) pages to raise money for their effort, with a goal of $5,000.

By placing veterans in hands-on, high-stress, team environments that mimic active duty, the organization gives them direction, empowerment and challenges that help them focus on ability and moving forward rather than disability and the past.
