BENEFITING: ROLLING THUNDER CHARITIES INC
EVENT DATE: Jun 12, 2015
Rolling Thunder riders from Rolling Thunder, Maryland Chapter 2 are travelling from sea to shining sea; Ocean City, Maryland to Santa Barbara, California, in support of veterans and Gold Star families. With the riders are the U.S. flag, state flags, a POW/MIA flag and flags for each branch of the military. The flags will be dipped in the waters of both oceans and, upon return, presented to state governors or auctioned for charity. Along with the riders making the full cross country journey will be various state and local riding groups for the trip across their state or region. One rider from each group will be chosen as standard bearer to carry the American flag through their local town. Each rider is asked to seek donations per mile to support Rolling Thunder Charities, Inc. and to use the ride to raise awareness of their own local veterans' charity projects. Riders are covering their own expense and fundraising and publicity expenses are being absorbed by volunteers. ALL money raised through this effort will go directly to Rolling Thunder Charities, Inc.
