2018 – Andy Biggio – SFC Jared C. Monti Award Recipient

As founder of They Fought We Ride, Andy puts his heart in soul into helping our wounded Heroes. While he will tell you that it’s not about him and there are many people involved, which is the truth, but we can’t under estimate the passion, drive and vision that he provides. Andy does not like recognition but those traits have made the difference in the growth and expansion of the Wounded Vet Runs starting up all over the country.  To learn more about the Wounded Vet Runs organization go to   They Fought We Ride.
