Pamlico Rose Institute for Sustainable Communities (PRISC) is hosting the Ride for Rose Haven: Supporting Women’s Veterans (RFRH) on June 2nd, 2018 in Washington, NC.
The bicycle ride is to raise awareness and support Women Veterans as they confront and heal from physical and emotional trauma from their service to our nation. Specifically, the ride will support the development and completion of Rose Haven in Washington, the re-integration home for female Veterans recovering from substance abuse. The ride will offer three routes, a 20, 50 and 100-miler through the scenic Inner Banks of North Carolina. Riders may camp without charge at the picturesque waterfront Festival Park on June 1. The ride is $90 and includes tee-shirt, wrist band, fully-stocked rest stops, SAG support, camping at the waterfront Festival Park for riders and support groups and more.There are alternative lodging options in Washington and the surrounding community. All proceeds will go to the Rose Haven project and efforts to raise awareness of the plight of women Veterans and other Veteran populations.
Online registration is now open and more information on the ride can be found at
The RFRH is part of the Healing Vets Weekend, May 31-June 2 in Washington, NC. More information on the weekend can be found here:
This is a weekend of events in addition to RFRH that explore avenues of holistic healing in Veteran populations, such as art, music, gardening, personal reflection and physical fitness. We hope to make RFRH an annual event.
I have attached flyers for RFRH and the Healing Vets Weekend and an information sheet on who PRISC is.
North Carolina has the 8th largest population of Veterans in the US, and one of the largest of women Veterans as well. The RFRH is an example of how cycling, and events like it, can be an important avenue for healing.
