Forgotten Not Gone, a Nevada-based Veteran Nonprofit organization focused on "Stomping Out Veteran Suicide!", will travel to Utah to receive essential repairs for 5 trikes in its fleet at Utah Trikes on June 14th. #FNG would like to connect with local Veterans and business's while in Utah and invite you to come take a test ride with us. We have been generously donated a room at Springhill Suites by Marriott Provo from the 14th to the 17th and would like to extend a huge Thank you to the General Manager, Keely Wilson for making it possible.

Donations we received will go towards servicing the electric assist motors of our trikes, thereby enabling more veterans with disabilities to participate. Our Fleet of Recumbent Trikes accommodate a variety of physical needs thanks to their comfortable recumbent seats and ergonomic pedaling system. Electric assist motors ensure that even persons with more severe disabilities can be included. Find details on the project here:

Forgotten Not Gone Co-Founder Peter Guidry commented, "My own struggles with the physical and mental effects of Military service showed me that suffering Veterans required further assistance over the psychotropics and Narcotics recommended. Forgotten Not Gone aims to fill Veterans' need for a social connection to community and camaraderie with Veteran Peer Support. To overcome these limitations are trikes are upgraded with electric assists, giving our Veterans their independence back. These repairs are crucial to achieving our mission of "Stomping Out Veteran Suicide!"

Suicide rates among veterans in Nevada are some of the highest in the nation. Nearly 10 percent of the population of Nevada are veterans, and more than one-in-four of Nevada veterans have a disability.
