Riding to raise money for veterans and their families
In previous years, the ride helped to raise more than $11,000 for scholarships and other veteran-based programs
ONALASKA, Wis (WKBT) – Bikers from around the state are helping raise funds for the families of fallen soldiers.
The American Legion Riders of District Seven held its third annual legacy run. It’s to raise money for the American Legion Legacy Scholarship Fund and other local veteran organizations.
The scholarship fund provides money for college to children and family members of post 9/11 veterans who died on active duty or have a combined VA disability rating of 50% or greater.
It also benefits the Camp American Legion Freedom Honor Flight and Vietnam War Memorial Monument.
In previous years, the ride helped to raise more than $11,000 for scholarships and other veteran-based programs.
“Especially this day and age, right now people don’t have jobs, the unemployment rate is high. This money will help those veterans in need,” said Howie Horman, the President of American Legion Riders District 7.
The ride made a few stops including Soldiers Walk Memorial Park in Arcadia.
