Rider roars off on run to help troops

Steve Schisler roared off on his Ride Across America this morning from Sacramento in a national run to Washington, D.C., in support of American troops and veterans during National Military Appreciation Month.

The Grass Valley financial manager and member of the Rebels With A Cause motorcycle group got a call last week to lead the ride for Operation Homefront, a national non-profit that provides emergency help and morale to troops and their families.

“We support families of deployed soldiers and wounded soldiers who come home,” Schisler said before taking off on the “Capital to Capital,” run to raise funds.



“A few days ago we had a Marine get out after 16 years who lost his leg,” Schisler said. “We got him a house (in Sacramento) and built him a ramp,” so he can get into it. “We also just moved a lady whose husband is in Iraq.”

According to the Operation Homefront Web site, families of soldiers can also obtain furniture, food, vehicle repairs and school supplies from the group. To donate or to help, call Schisler’s office at 530-274-1800, or call toll free at 866-783-2030.




Although he will be on the open American road this week, Schisler said those at his office will handle the calls. You can also drop by his Synergy Investment Group office at 515 South Auburn St. to donate, or to get more information.
