The Ultimate Sacrifice Foundation (TUSF) Warrior Ride – Finishes in Coronado June 18

3,700 Miles for the Unheard Voices of Our Nation's Military Communities to Culminate in a Finish Line Celebration at 11 am on Saturday, June 18, 2022 at the Poolside Lawn of the Coronado Island Marriott Resort & Spa located at 2000 Second Street, Coronado

The TUSF Warrior Ride is a coast-to-coast, 3,700 mile bicycle ride from Boston, MA to Coronado, CA conducted by Army Veteran Kyle Bigue to raise awareness regarding the elevated rates of suicidal ideation and post-traumatic stress within our Nation’s Service Member, Veteran, and Gold Star Family communities. This monumental endeavor began on 29 April with Kyle touching the Atlantic Ocean in Boston, and will end on June 18 when he touches the Pacific Ocean in Coronado.

On Saturday, April 29, 2022, Kye Bigue, a Combat Veteran, Warrior, and Brother, touched the Atlantic Ocean in Boston, MA and began the 3,700 mile, coast-to-coast Warrior Ride.

1,200 miles later on Saturday, May 14, 2022, Kyle reached Bloomington, IL. After weeks of battling the cold and the rain, Kyle arrived safely and The Ultimate Sacrifice Foundation (TUSF) was afforded the amazing opportunity to host an event in honor of the late SGT Anthony Maddox and his Gold Star Family. This event was special to Kyle and the TUSF Staff, as many of us were there the day Anthony gave his life in service to our Nation

2,200 miles into the Warrior Ride, Kyle reached Golden, CO. On May 28, 2022, Kyle and TUSF were on the receiving end of the Rocky Mountain’s finest hospitality.

Now, Kyle has entered the third and final leg of his journey where he will traverse the Rocky Mountains, cross the Arizona deserts, and make his way to the beautiful Coronado, CA!

When all is said and done, on June 18, 2022, Kyle will touch the Pacific Ocean and signal the monumental completion of 3,700 miles in under 7 weeks, bringing the TUSF Warrior Ride to a conclusion. To honor Kyle’s accomplishment and continue TUSF’s mission, we will be hosting a finish line event at the Coronado Island Marriott Resort & Spa from 11:00am to 2:00pm PST. Tickets to this event can be purchased at:
