Every year, veterans, current service members, and other participants ride 500 miles over four days, across Illinois, to ensure that these service members' names live on forever, and that their sacrifices create opportunities to enrich the lives of others. Thus, we must Never Forget.
This year, on Wednesday, September 25th, these riders will enter downtown Peoria on their way to a National Guard Facility in Bartonville. We are determined to make this stop the largest, most welcoming of any stop in the history of the ride. Our goal is to pack the Peoria Court House Memorial Garden with hundreds, if not thousands, of people welcoming them, listening to their stories, and learning about the memories they are working so hard to preserve.
As part of this event, there will be food and drinks, and other festivities. We hope to see you there. Buy your tickets today before they're all gone!
Without your overwhelming support and involvement, none of this would be possible.
