Wounded Warrior freedom tour to roll through Truckee

TRUCKEE, Calif. — The Mustang Clubs of America, Ford Motor Company and the Wounded Warrior Family Support organization have joined forces to raise funds for the “Mobility is Freedom” High Five Tour.

Wounded Warrior Family Support has pledged to provide 100 mobility-equipped Ford Explorers and/or Ford F-150s to combat-wounded veterans who are paralyzed or have lost both of their legs.

These vehicles, which will be converted to hand-controlled operation, will provide wounded veterans with freedom to live a productive and quality life with their families, according to the High Five Tour.

There are two vehicles with special paint traveling throughout the United States to MCA Clubs collecting funds for this cause.

The Mustang Club of Reno has pledged to raise $20,000 for the High Five Tour, which will travel through Truckee from noon to 2 p.m. on Tuesday, June 23, featuring two mobility-equipped vehicles.

California Highway Patrol and Truckee Police officers will meet the two Wounded Warrior vehicles at Gold Ranch Casino in Verdi at 11:30 a.m. for escort to Truckee Town Hall.

From there, the tour will continue to stops at Mountain Hardware and Sports and the Tahoe Donner Association, before returning to Reno at 2:15 p.m.

The overall High Five Tour goal for 2015 is to raise $1 million. Visit highfivetour.com to learn more.
