A group of North­eastern staff mem­bers will join hun­dreds of cyclists par­tic­i­pating in a 44-​​mile bike ride through the sub­urbs of Boston to sup­port severely injured ser­vicemen and women of the United States Armed Forces.

The national Wounded War­rior Project is spon­soring a local leg of its Sol­dier Ride tour on Aug. 27 at 8 a.m. The ride begins and ends at The Old Manse in Con­cord, Mass., and winds through the sur­rounding towns of Bed­ford, Chelms­ford, Lex­ington, Lin­coln, Carlisle, Acton and Waltham.

This is a great way to stay in shape and sup­port a ter­rific cause,” said Mike Armini, a member of Team North­eastern and a senior vice pres­i­dent at the Uni­ver­sity. “We have a great group of people riding and rep­re­senting North­eastern, but we’d like to add a few more before the day of the ride.”

Other mem­bers of Team North­eastern include Amelia Briz­icky, Lauren Dibble, Mike Fer­rari, Mike Tal­entino and Lucy Warsh.

More than 13,000 sol­diers and civil­ians are expected to par­tic­i­pate in the year­long 13-​​city Sol­dier Ride tour, which includes stops in New York, Chicago and San Antonio. Civilian cyclists are required to raise at least $150 to sup­port the Wounded War­rior Project.

The Sol­dier Ride gives wounded sol­diers from across the nation the chance to restore their phys­ical and emo­tional well-​​being and prove to them­selves that they can still live an active lifestyle.

This summer, North­eastern launched a new web­site — www​.north​eastern​.edu/​v​e​t​e​r​ans— that serves as a hub for vet­erans’ pro­grams, the University’s Vet­erans Memo­rial, its cen­ters for defense-​​related research and Northeastern’s ROTC pro­gram, one of the largest in New England.

Those inter­ested in joining Team North­eastern for the ride may con­tact Amelia Briz­icky at a.​brizicky@​neu.​edu.
