Shiny side up

Dec. 16, 2014

Harley-Davidson last month delivered 2015 motorcycles to six veterans of the armed forces to “jumpstart” its partnership with the Wounded Warrior Project to help better the lives of service men and women affected by post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD).

The six veterans—all of whom have been diagnosed with symptoms of PTSD—are experienced riders and were selected to receive the Harleys because they no longer have access to bikes due to various hardships. 

As part of the partnership, Harley-Davidson will collaborate with Wounded Warrior Project to develop a program geared toward helping more veterans experience the positive benefits of the open road. The company pointed out that peer-to-peer activities, such as motorcycle riding, have been known to provide positive therapeutic benefits for PTSD.
