CHARLOTTE, N.C. - Dozens of injured service members from the Charlotte area rode from Huntersville to Charlotte on Friday.
The Wounded Warrior Project Soldier Ride was designed to help soldiers restore their physical, mental and emotional well-being.
Some rode state-of-the-art hand cycles, trikes and bicycles.
Edwin Williams suffers from Post-traumatic Stress Disorder and said the comradery is good for his recovery.
“Once you get out of the military you still have a family other than your regular family,” Williams said.
Another warrior ride will take place Saturday at the Botanical Gardens in Belmont.
