The Greatest Blessing
Do you often wonder what YOU can do to make this world a better place? Do you imagine yourself as too small or too insignificant to really make a difference?
You are invited to read about someone who despite all odds is making an impact on thousands of people every day with his efforts. And now he is asking you to do the same.
Bob Wieland is a man of vision. He is the kind of person who has dreamed of a better world despite whatever mountain he has had to climb to make it so. As a young man Bob was always one to serve and this included his enlistment in the Army and deployment to Vietnam. It was here Bob faced an unimaginable tragedy when he stepped on a land mine while trying to save a fellow soldier.
For many people living life without your legs would have been enough to retire and focus on their own needs, however Bob Wieland's vision of a better world transcended his own personal issues and drove him to bigger and better thing.
Maybe you've heard of Bob's awe inspiring trek across the USA using his arms? It was during this record breaking walk that he raised thousands to support the impoverished.
Surely for most people that would have been enough, but not for Bob. In Early 2011 Bob Wieland set out on a cross country bike tour and fund raiser to earn money for one of his favorite causes, The Dream Center. Throughout the journey Bob has met thousands of people and made just as many friends who are supporting him and his cause.
Now we're asking you to help in whatever way you can. Click on the link below to go to our donation page. Bob calculates it will take 12 million rotations of his pedals to make it across the USA. Please sponsor 1 or as many as 200 rotations so that he can continue to show the Dream Center how together we can make a difference.
In 1986 Bob completed a 3000 mile walk across America on his arms.
In 1996 Bob rode a hand cycle 6000 miles across America and back
In 2011 Bob's doing it all again for the Dream Center and he needs your support.
"Living is still the best way to celebrate life"
The video above is just one of the many news stories Bob has
on his cross country journey. On many occasions he has said how
grateful he is for the continued support of his family and friends from
around the world. Now you have a chance to be one of Bob's supporters.
Big or small, the only thing that matters is you participate and show
Bob Wieland's cross country ride is in support of the Dream Center, a volunteer organization that supports nearly 40,000 inner city individuals and families faced with the kind of insurmountable challenges that most people can't even imagine. Learn more about the Dream Center project.

Dream Ride 3 Reaches Santa Monica, California
Than Expected; "But It's Too Soon to Quit"
September 28, 2012 - Open Letter from Bob Wieland:
"Hello from Bob Wieland, giving you a shout out from Los Angeles California. Just want to make a few announcements about what has been happening as of late.
First of all, I want to thank each and every one of you who have followed me on Dream Ride 3. As you know we started in Los Angeles California, went all the way across the country and started back and reached as far as Mobile, Alabama. My goal was to ride back to Los Angeles to complete our round trip journey.
In the last few months we have delayed the ride for several reasons. One was because of various speaking engagements that were inspired by the ride.
Also in my effort to complete the ride I regret to inform all my friends and fan base that Dream Ride 3 will no longer be resumed from Mobile because the logistics of completing the ride and because of circumstances out of my control has been determined too involved an unpractical due to today's highway and municipal laws across various states.
However, because Bob Wieland likes to keep his word I will finish the 7,000 mile bike ride as promised by finishing the final 1200 miles doing as many laps as it takes to go up and down the west coast Santa Monica, [California] boardwalk until all 7,000 miles are completed.
I want to thank all of you who have contributed to Dream Ride 3, providing help and inspiration to those who needed a "hand up". Our efforts together have been an inspiration to many people along the route of Dream Ride 3. Not only were people inspired, but others were literally saved from the grips of death.
Literally, I've spoken to several people who were on a course of suicide. After having the opportunity to give them words of inspiration in life, either on the streets or in a meeting somewhere across the country their lives were spared. Without you, the messenger wouldn't have had the opportunity to deliver the message; and for that I thank you.
For all intense purposes Dream Ride 3 is finished traveling across the country.... Although I will complete the final miles on the boardwalk of Santa Monica beach and report to you the miles as I go.
Meanwhile, stay tuned because "It's Too Soon to Quit." My next project is in the making and we have a big program set for November 10 and lots coming in 2013. God bless and thank you all"
