Once upon a time a few members of the Minnesota American Legion Family went on the National American Legion Legacy Run. During the run, they said, “Hey! We can do this!” Since they were also
members of the American Legion Riders at their various posts, they figured that this organization would be well suited to work together for this worth cause.
They approached the The Commander of The American Legion, Department of Minnesota for permission to organize a run to gather and raise funds for this scholarship. He (it just so happened) had
initiated a $1000 donation to the Legacy Scholarship Fund at National Convention. But he wanted to do more. This was an opportunity. He agreed and appointed two of them as co-chairman of
They brought others in, who were interested in supporting the kids, were members of the American Legion Riders, and and thought a run would be fun.
The first one was in 2010, covered all 10 American Legion Districts in the state of Minnesota, and continued on to The American Legion National Convention in Milwaukee.
We have done this every year since, and continue to ride for the kids.
