Friends of the Soldiers Home provided some nice front-row seating for Home residents at a hospitality tent on a beautiful day at one of the biggest BMX bike races on the East Coast. Friends volunteers, as well as members of DCMTB and Crosshairs cycling, teamed up to collect donations and provide services that benefit the AFRH residents at the race held last weekend at the Home’s campus. Catholic University student nurses made hearty chili with corn bread to serve the residents who came to the event. This was a win-win all around as everyone enjoyed the chili and the races on a beautiful day on the campus! Story and photos courtesy of Mike Potvin.
