About the Foundations Warrior Ride Across America has chosen to raise money for:

The Travis Manion Foundation's (TMF) mission is to assist our nation's veterans and the families of Fallen Heroes. We will continue the service to community and country exemplified by these Fallen Heroes and veterans. In the spirit of the Fallen, we will foster strength of mind and body to create a generation of future leaders.

The Marine Corps - Law Enforcement Foundation (MC-LEF) mission is to encourage the spiritual, moral, intellectual and physical development of children through education. This Foundation was formed in February of 1995 by former Marines and law enforcement personnel who strongly believe that our nation's most precious resource is its youth. All costs for this ride will be carried by the volunteer riders and support crew. All donations will be contributed to the foundations.
