Project Warhorse is a Veteran/Rider owned organization on a mission to provide custom BMX bikes, the community, comradery, and relief BMX can give to military veterans and others who struggle with mental health. The goal is to not only introduce people to the physically active, mentally stimulating, creatively expressive, and socially interactive, healthy escape outlet BMX can be for them by giving them a bike, but to also bring a positive spotlight to BMX from society as a whole by bringing the communities together, providing them a network of riders in there area, and getting everyone involved in something that will have a lasting positive impact in their lives and the lives of others.
All bikes are built from donated new and used parts, and will be gifted to the recipients by donation, free of charge.
It may sound funny to some that riding a bike could help bring any relief to serious mental health struggles, but BMX has proven to be just as effective, and provides the same type of stimulation, relief, fun, and comradery as martial arts, obstacle races, motorcycles, range days, parkour, fitness training, and other similar outlets that have helped with depression, PTSD, anxiety, insomnia, etc.
BMX has helped save my life, and it’s my goal to give that gift to others.
If you would like to help make a difference in a positive way and become a member of the Project Warhorse Family, or know a veteran that might have fun with a BMX bike, please share a screenshot of the page, spread the word, and reach out to us!
