Recently, DARPA staff finished a grueling 2-day, 110 Mile Bike Ride that started near DARPA headquarters in Arlington, Va. and ended in Gettysburg, Pa. The team took part in World T.E.A.M. Sports’ annual Face of America ride, which honors wounded warriors. DARPA staff rode as part of Team Strength & Honor which raised more than $39,000. The event attracted more than 500 riders, including more than 60 wounded warriors. Funds raised cover the costs for wounded warriors to participate in the ride and other World T.E.A.M Sports events.
“DARPA staff work hard to give our warfighters technological superiority,” said Dr. Kaigham J. Gabriel, Acting DARPA Director. “But, we never forget who we are working for—those who sacrifice to keep America safe.”
