Together, Let's Raise $60,000!

AFA is hosting our second annual Wounded Airman Cycling Challenge (WACC) benefiting AFA's Wounded Airman Program (WAP). In partnership with CycleBar, an indoor spin class venue, we have a goal to raise $60,000 by hosting a fun spin class fundraiser to support our Wounded Airmen in need. AFA's Wounded Airman Program provides life-changing and lifesaving support to our wounded, ill, and injured Airmen who have given so much to our Air Force and our nation.
