Note From AFA President -- AF Cycling Classic -- Wash DC area

This weekend, Arlington Sports, Inc. is conducting the annual Air Force Cycling Classic – held in the Crystal City, Pentagon, Air Force Memorial area.  There is a combination of events, amateur and professional, for those who enjoy cycling to participate. 
This year, the Classic has designated AFA’s Wounded Airman Program as the principal beneficiary.  AFA will receive money raised through pledges made by those participating in Sunday’s Air Force Cycling Challenge Crystal Ride as part of Team Sabre.  While most of the entries are sold out, there are a few left for those who want to ride.

For those of you who do not live near DC and who want to contribute, you can make donations to the Wounded Airman program at:  [Be sure to click the Wounded Airman button on the sheet.]
Finally … and this is important– I want to formally thank the sponsors of the event.  You can find them on the first link above … but notable is the presenting sponsor – The Boeing Company.  Thank you to all of the industrial partners of the event.
