Last year we had 85 riders visit Veterans. Our goal this year: at least 100 riders to visit four hospitals.
In honor of all the Vets who served our country and are unable to be ‘out and about’ on that day, the shop and riders from the local American Legion posts and riding clubs will be dedicating their morning to ride down to the Veterans Hospital in La Jolla, CA and on Camp Pendleton. This ride is open to Military and Non-Military members. We just need your RSVP to coordinate with the hospitals. Ride is also available for those who wish to follow in a car, truck or van.
We are helping to collect cash donations to support the cost of the daily supplies and toiletries our wounded Vets need. The riders who join us that day will be able to bring down the goody bags of supplies that are being put together by the American Legion.
