Snap-on Honors Wounded Warriors; Hosts Soldier Ride at Headquarters

Snap-on this week honored the country's wounded warriors, hosting the annual "Soldier Ride" at its corporate headquarters in Kenosha, WI. The ride is an awareness and confidence-building outreach by the Wounded Warrior Project (WWP), an organization dedicated to helping wounded veterans returning home from Afghanistan and Iraq.

Snap-on this week honored the country’s wounded warriors, hosting the annual “Soldier Ride” at its corporate headquarters in Kenosha, WI. The ride is an awareness and confidence-building outreach by the Wounded Warrior Project (WWP), an organization dedicated to helping wounded veterans returning home from Afghanistan and Iraq.

More than 30 WWP riders and their caregivers were welcomed to the Snap-on Innovation Works facility in Kenosha.

“It is a privilege and an honor to host the Solider Ride for the fourth consecutive year,” said Nick Pinchuk, Snap-on chairman and CEO. “These brave men and women are American heroes and we value them and their service. The ‘Soldier Ride’ is indeed a special event for everyone involved.”

More than 400 Snap-on associates, veterans and community members were on-hand for the event. The day kicked-off with a breakfast for the warriors, followed by a program honoring the special veterans and the sacrifices they’ve made for our country. The program concluded with an unveiling of a new “Wounded Warrior” special paint scheme for the Snap-on Car competing in the Chicago NHRA Nationals in Joliet, IL, June 29-July 1. The design honors these American heroes and will be driven by two-time NHRA champion Cruz Pedregon.

A number of Snap-on representatives paid tribute to the WWP by joining the Soldier Ride alongside the specially equipped bikes of those who have been injured during military service. The route traveled through the cities of Kenosha and Pleasant Prairie, WI; Winthrop Harbor, Zion and Waukegan, IL, and finished at the Great Lakes Naval Station in Great Lakes, IL.
