As the CEO of Buyer's Choice, Inc., William Deyesso leverages over 20 years of experience in the insurance industry to manage billions of dollars in assets. Beyond his professional pursuits, William Deyesso supports a variety of nonprofit organizations, including the Wounded Warrior Project (WWP).
Established following the September 11, 2001, terrorist attack on the World Trade Center, the WWP serves to help soldiers assimilate back into society following service. Over 48,000 service men and women were physically injured in recent military conflicts such as Operation Iraqi Freedom, while another 400,000 are estimated to be living with invisible illnesses like posttraumatic stress disorder and depression. WWP provides a variety of programs and resources to help those individuals overcome their physical and mental wounds. One WWP initiative is Soldier Ride.
The four-day Soldier Ride was created as an opportunity for veterans and wounded service members to share a sense of camaraderie in the joint effort of overcoming emotional and physical wounds. All bicycles, including top-notch adaptive hand cycles and trikes to accommodate warriors will all types of injuries, are provided free of charge. The first day of the four-day event involves bike-fitting and a meet and greet, while the next two days include up to 35 miles of riding. The fourth and final day is reserved for an end-of-event breakfast.
