HOLLYWOOD HAMILTON, host of the PREMIERE NETWORKS syndicated programs "The Remix Top 30 Countdown" and "Weekend Top 30," will utilize his vacation time this summer to raise funds and awareness for WOUNDED WARRIORS PROJECT, a non-profit organization dedicated to helping thousands of injured warriors returning home from current conflicts and providing assistance to their families.
Beginning JULY 15th, HAMILTON and his wife MARINA will attempt a 350-mile bicycle ride along the CHESAPEAKE AND OHIO CANAL from WASHINGTON, D.C. to PITTSBURGH, with 100% of donations to their GOFUNDME page benefiting WWP. Covering approximately 70 miles a day, the duo will also video blog their entire journey on their donation site.
"Our mission is to build awareness for our brave soldiers who fought for our freedom and safety, and to give back to our wounded soldiers," said HAMILTON. "Some of you who personally know us might think, ‘there is no way he could possibly go six days without an XBOX’ or ‘his wife MARINA could never live without a hair dryer.’ For those reasons, along with both of us being stubborn and the possibility that we may break up somewhere along the way, we will only be collecting these thoughtful donations based on the miles we cover."
