Project Hero City of Reno 

FLYER Founded in 2008, Project Hero is a groundbreaking national non-profit organization dedicated to helping Veterans and First Responders affected by PTSD, TBI and injury achieve rehabilitation, recovery and resilience in their daily lives and increasing awareness to combat the national mental health emergency posed by PTSD and TBI.  

About Project HERO - City of Reno

Veterans wishing to participate in Project HERO can use their own bicycles. The City of Reno program is unique in its ability to rent bicycles, which were purchased through a GE funding grant, to Veteran participants (6 months, no cost). Bicycle availability is limited and subject to current bicycle inventory on hand. For safety and riding comfort, veterans will be paired up with the appropriate size bicycle.
