In the wake of the 113th Army-Navy Game, Chevrolet and students from Michigan Technological University revealed a new hand cycle designed to make it easier for veterans to compete in racing events.
Stronger, as well as more comfortable, durable and portable than current commercially available cycles, the cycle was designed by Michigan Tech mechanical engineering students as part of a senior projected named Huskies Helping Heroes.
In addition to this partnership, GM Chairman and CEO Daniel Akerson announced that GM will build 10 prototypes for use next year by the Achilles Freedom Team of wounded veterans in marathons across the US.
How else is GM involved with Veterans? Over 5,000 veterans are employed by General Motors across the United States. Chevrolet assists Cell Phones for Soldiers, Achilles Freedom Team, the Fallen and Wounded Soldiers Fund and a variety of grassroots and employment initiatives including Hiring our Heroes. GM is committed to giving back to veterans everywhere to thank them for their service and it's for this reason that General Motors offers the most generous military discount of any other major car brand. Discounts are offered on most Chevrolet, Buick and GMC vehicles for active duty, reserves and veterans of the US Air Force, Army, Navy, Marine Corps, Coast Guard and National Guards branches.
