Hero of the Week

In celebration of our 10th anniversary, Project Hero is proud to debut a new weekly feature, our Hero of The Week, recognizing some of the great work done by our healing heroes for America’s Finest and communities throughout the nation.  This week, our Hero is one of our most ardent riders and active supporter, Mark Weidhase of Redlands, CA.  Mark’s favorite sports team and his favorite color speak volumes about his commitment to helping others achieve hope, recovery and resilience.
