2nd Angels of the Road Ride for Veterans – Menomonee
Menomonee Falls, WI— The Henrizi-Schneider American Legion Post 382 in Menomonee Falls, WI along with the partnership of the Open Road Angels will be hosting its 2nd benefit ride, Angels of the Road Ride for Veterans on Sunday, September 8th, 2019. Proceeds from this ride will benefit the Milwaukee Homeless Veterans Initiative. Since 2008, MHVI has helped more than 3,000 at-risk Veterans and their families by providing the services to reach and maintain their highest level of independence. Last year this ride raised and donated $7,000 for their cause.
An estimated 300 riders will begin their day at Post 382 with registration at 8 am and rider send off at 9 am. Participants will then embark on their travels to partnering Legion Posts in Washington and Waukesha Counties. Participating Posts are American Legion Post 1 in Germantown, Post 522 in Hubertus, Post 294 in Hartland, Post 399 in Okauchee, Post 196 in Delafield, Post 375 in Mukwonago, and Post 449 in Brookfield. Each Post will offer up its own unique activity or food for the riders to enjoy. Don’t ride a motorcycle? No worries this ride is also open to those wishing to participate in their vehicles as well. After visiting with Veterans at each location and getting their Checkpoint Charlie Card stamped, riders will return to Menomonee Falls for a wrap up party.
Cost to participate is $25 per bike/car plus $15 per additional rider/passenger. Online registration at https://angelsoftheroad.regfox.com/angelsoftheroad or by visiting the registration link found on our Facebook Page – Angels of the Road Ride for Veterans.
