 [ November 9, 2009 ] San Diego, California — ClearedJobs.Net, a veteran-owned job board company exclusively serving the security cleared community, is sponsoring the Wounded Explosive Ordnance Disposal Warrior Foundation's (WEODWF) Undefeated 2-Day Bike Ride scheduled for November 14-15, 2009 in San Diego, California.

Forty-one (41) riders and ten (10) support personnel will ride nearly 200 miles along Southern California's coast at this year's event; which rolls from Naval Air Station, Point Mugu to Liberty Station, San Diego. The bike ride will help raise funds to support U.S. Wounded EOD Warriors and their families. All proceeds will go to the WEODWF (www.woundedeodwarrior.org) which funds and supports military EOD families caring for their loved ones at military medical facilities across the country.

"The resources provided to these families are above and beyond the budgetary constraints of the Department of Defense and the Department of Veterans Affairs," says John Nixon, Chief Operating Officer for ClearedJobs.Net and a riding participant of this year's event.
