Nitro Circus Athlete Raising Money for Veterans

The action sports athlete and veteran says, even though he will be putting on a lot of miles, its worth it so veterans can get the help they need.

DULUTH, Minn. — A member of the Nitro Circus made a stop in Duluth today as he makes his way to the East Coast.

Tyler Pynnonen, a Grand Rapids resident, caught up with Fox 21 to talk about his journey riding a Honda Trail 70 motorcycle starting from North Dakota to Maryland to raise money for wounded veterans for the fundraiser Operation 1776.

The action sports athlete and veteran says, even though he will be putting on a lot of miles, its worth it so veterans can get the help they need.

“I know raising money for them is going to be very good … get veterans some modified vehicles so that way they can actually enjoy just going outdoors again and enjoying life,” Nitro Circus Athlete, Tyler Pynnonen says.
