CHICAGO, IL--(Marketwired - Jul 28, 2016) - WASPcam™; maker of affordable, high-performance HD action-sports camera systems and accessories for outdoor enthusiasts around the world living the PROVE IT™ lifestyle, today announced it is the Official Action Cam Sponsor for the Veteran's Charity Ride to Sturgis. The second annual motorcycle ride, which aids wounded and amputee veterans across a 1,776-mile, nine day, multi-state route, was developed to provide therapy and support for those injured in combat while serving our country. The ride starts on Saturday, July 30 in Los Angeles and ends at the Sturgis Motorcycle Rally in South Dakota with multiple stops to experience the iconic American scenery along the way.
The program was conceived and developed by veteran Army Paratrooper David Frey and Emmy Award-winning producer and director Robert Manciero of Full Vision Productions. It leverages "motorcycle therapy" and awe-inspiring American scenery to provide support and healing for wounded vets during the adventure-of-a-lifetime ride. Twenty deserving vets representing all branches of the military were selected to take part in the epic journey, which will be captured and produced to chronicle the trip and the personal experiences of riders. WASPcam cameras will be alongside the vets to capture and stream video content to share with as many veterans as possible.
"Our mission is to show the brave men and women who served our country just how much their service has meant to the American people, and to aid in their healing process," said David Frey. "What better way to do this than to host a charity ride that offers the perfect opportunity to involve fellow vets to share experiences and provide a therapeutic road to recovery. Our route and itinerary traverses some of this nation's most beautiful scenery, with plenty of meaningful stops along the way that will build memorable, lasting experiences which we are excited to share with the country via a mashup of WASPcam footage and our own production videography."
