More than 50 wounded veterans and supporters cycled 400 miles from Santa Cruz to Ventura during the annual UnitedHealthcare California Challenge Oct. 14-19, benefiting Project Hero, a nonprofit that helps veterans and first responders affected by injury, post-traumatic stress disorder and traumatic brain injury achieve rehabilitation, recovery and resilience in their daily lives. Riders were pictured coming into Ventura, the last leg of the race.
