Boston Wounded Vet Run
Boston’s Annual Wounded Vet Bike Run Inspired by Cpl. Vincent Mannion Brodeur began in 2011. One of the most severely wounded veterans in the nation, Vinnie is the recipient of the Bronze Star and Purple Heart. While servin g in Iraq in 2007 with the 82nd Airborne, Vinnie was critically injured by an insurgents improvised explosive device. After surviving 40 operations and a year long coma Vincent has become an inspiration for people throughout the nation. All proceeds from Vinnie’s Run went to creating a handicapped accessible living space for Vinnie.
Every year Boston’s Wounded Vet Run will be dedicated to different disabled veterans. Proceeds raised go towards housing modifications, recreational objects , cars, basic living items, and other things that help improve the quality of life for a wounded war hero. The event is sponsored by the Italian-American War Veterans. Boston’s Wounded Vet Run is a 501c3 Non-Profit charity (47-1461072). Money raised in the name of this organization benefit selected wounded veterans and charities of their choosing. All volunteers work free and there are no paid staff. They fought, and we ride, a bike run honoring the wounded veteran’s of New England.
