The American Legion Riders (ALR) were formed in 1993 by American Legion members who are motorcycle enthusiasts. The Minnesota Chapter was formed in 2010. The chapters raise money for such organizations as local VA Hospitals, battered women and children’s centers, various children and youth programs, veterans relief and many more. The Legacy Run coming through Adrian is raising money for the American Legion Legacy Scholarship. This scholarship was created for children whose parent(s) have been killed while serving our country since September 11, 2001. The scholarship is for undergraduate study at an accredited institution of higher education within the United States.
Come show your support for these veterans raising money for such a worthwhile cause on August 2nd at the Adrian Legion Hall.
