Wounded Warriors swim with dolphins

MARATHON, FL (CNN) - Some wounded veterans taking part in a three-day cycling event ended their adventure in the water with dolphins.

Friday, about 30 wounded vets, many of them amputees, swam with the dolphins at the dolphin research center in Marathon, Florida.

It was part of an event sponsored by the Wounded Warrior project, a nonprofit which helps severely injured veterans.

After their dolphin encounter, the veterans rode seven miles on special bikes to complete the soldier ride.
