Snap-on Hosts Wounded Warriors Riders
KENOSHA, Wis.--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- Snap-on Incorporated (NYSE:SNA) on Saturday hosted members of the Wounded Warrior Project during a portion of the Wisconsin and Illinois Solider Ride. The breakfast, held at the company's Innovation Works Center in Kenosha, included Snap-on associates and their families, and was also attended by City of Kenosha Mayor Keith Bosman.
The Wounded Warrior Project (WWP), an independent, non-profit organization established to assist American soldiers wounded in conflict, worked with organizations in Wisconsin and Illinois to create a series of bicycle tours that began in Waterloo, Wis., on June 11 and culminated on Sunday in Chicago.
"The Wounded Warriors program is about Americans taking care of those who served," said Nick Pinchuk, Snap-on Incorporated chairman and chief executive officer. "This is a non-profit organization established to aid our wounded veterans, providing the kind of added-value care and rehabilitation that will allow these heroes to live complete and unencumbered lives. Snap-on is honored to play a small part in paying tribute to the spirit and determination of these wounded warriors."
The ride began in Waterloo, Wis., on Thursday morning with a launch ceremony at the Trek Bicycle manufacturing facility. From there the group of riders bicycled some 40 miles through southern Wisconsin, making stops in Milwaukee before starting Saturday at Snap-on.
