Occoquan, VA – On Friday, October 4, the Town of Occoquan will serve as a stop for the inaugural “Warrior Ride” sponsored by Comfort for America’s Uniformed Services (CAUSE). The ride features Army veterans Darrel and Roseann Mooney, who have been traveling from Washington State to Washington, DC, on a tandem bicycle to raise awareness for PTSD, TBI, and service injuries.  Occoquan will be the couple’s last stop before they leave for Washington, DC on Sunday morning.

“We’re honored to be included in this effort,” said Occoquan Mayor Earnie Porta.  “This is both a great accomplishment by the Mooneys and a worthy cause that they are supporting.  I want to thank not only CAUSE for including us, but Vice-Mayor Liz Quist, who has worked with CAUSE for many years.  This is the sort of thing that the entire community can enthusiastically get behind.”

Occoquan will welcome the riders with an arrival ceremony in Mamie Davis Park scheduled to begin at approximately 5:00 p.m.  Consisting of some brief remarks and some musical entertainment, the Town will also be providing free hot dogs, hamburgers, and drinks for attendees.  The event is free and open to the public, and the Town encourages residents, business owners, and visitors to come out and support the couple and this worthy cause.  For those who cannot attend on Friday there will be another opportunity to support the effort by seeing the couple off from Mamie Davis Park at  9:00 on Sunday morning with a team of more than thirty riders as they begin the last leg of their journey.
