Quest for Our Vets: Mike and Nate Bike the States

Two young men Bike the States from Key West to Niagara Falls to raise $50k for Wounded Warrior Project

Online PR News – 07-July-2012 – Boca Raton, FL – There’s a quest at hand. While this journey just began on June 25th, the seeds for this mission were planted long beforehand. Michael Buonaiuto, Jr. (21) and Nathaniel Frankoski (25) decided to give back to our wounded warriors with an excursion taking them from the glory and tranquility of Key West, FL, North over 2,000 miles to the beauty and wonder of Niagra Falls, NY. For 50 days these gentlemen will bring to light the vision of the Wounded Warrior Project, “to foster the most successful, well adjusted generation of wounded service members in our nation’s history,” while raising $50,000 for this phenomenal cause.

With the expectation to arrive in Niagara Falls on August 14th, Bike the States’ entire riding schedule is online at so you can check out when they will hit up your locale. Share a warm welcome and join the nation in watching their backs! Let’s show Mike and Nate the America our veterans fought for while also supporting our wounded warriors. Mike and Nate might just stop in at your local VFW.

"Our hearts go out to those who risked life and limb for the freedoms and safety of America. A loss of a sense or limb is humbling.” Mike and Nate believe our soldiers deserve to be remembered and supported, especially in their time of need.
