  Welcome to Wertz Warriors!

The Wertz Warriors , founded by Detroit Tigers great, Vic Wertz in 1981, ban together for an annual Snowmobile Endurance Ride each year. Beginning their weekly journey on Sunday morning from Chesterfield Township, they will travel north on I-75 with their sleds secured in the impressive black trailers, along with Support Crew members and vehicles until they reach their first destination were they will be able to drop their sleds.This begins their Snowmobile Endurance Ride touring mid and northern Michigan. Each day they will visit local communities and establishments where they will find many friends who have become volunteers, like our members, organizing fundraisers and dedicating their time throughout the year, all in the effort to support the Special Olympics- MI Winter Games. The highlight of the week all happens on Wednesday at the Opening Ceremonies in Traverse City. The Wertz Warriors arrival is celebrated with Michigan's Special Athletes who are thrilled to get the opportunity to ride with the Warriors on their sleds. The athletes are also very excited and prepared to begin their Olympic competitions the following day. We will be celebrating our 35th Anniversary in 2016. The Wertz Warriors have collectively traveled over 1.2 million miles and have raised over 9 million dollars, nearly supporting 100% of the funds needed for Special Olympics-MI Winter Games. If you ever get the chance to come to the Grand Traverse Resort and spend some time with the Special Athletes and the Wertz Warriors on that Wednesday, you will experience the love, dedication, compassion, and spirit they have created with each other and you will never, ever forget it!
