We completed a journey of over 700 miles to get our recumbent trikes fixed at Utah Trikes. It took a team of 10 skilled workers, and 5 long days of repairs to help Forgotten Not Gone increase our capacity to serve “Stomping Out Veteran Suicide!” From riding in the snow on their custom quads to test riding different model trikes, Forgotten Not Gone was living life #StigmaFree, getting Mission Critical Trike Repairs completed and spreading a message of hope to Payson Utah!
Thank You for your support! With a outstanding Trike Repair Bill over $10,000, this would not be possible without your financial support. Without your generosity we could not afford to provide these Free, Fun critical resources for our Veterans to escape isolating at home in pain.
Custom Welding repairs, 3D printed parts, Electrical, E-bike motor repairs are an expensive necessary cost that it takes to complete our Mission. We cannot rely on volunteer help for these technical critical repairs, shop hourly labor rates range from $75 basic work to $130 plus for custom hourly rates. #FundTheMission https://forgottennotgone.org/ways-to-donate/
Thank You to Quality Inn Payson, Utah for donating a Safe, Clean, warm room for the entire week allowing us the opportunity not to have to worry about where to stay while our trikes were being fixed.
Of course we had to take a tour of Utah Trikes once our Veteran Life Saving fleet was unloaded…. We were like kids in a candy shop… Forgotten Not Gone needs your financial support purchasing 12 new trikes for our Veteran Trike Brigade! Instead of Drugs that they consider medicine, We Believe in Veteran Peer Support and Outdoor recreation outreach to help our Veterans #GetOutTheDamnHouse!
The Custom quad Kelley is test riding will allow a Veteran without the use of their lower limbs to regain independence and still Keep up with the Team #StigmaFree.
Ashley Guy of Utah trikes sold us our first 2 trikes Sept 2013. 7 years later we return with Post Traumatic Growth needing his Team’s help to fix our custom bicycles which will increase our capacity to serve more Veterans. Thank you Utah Trikes for helping make this happen and for all of the hard work your team put in!
