FLORIDA STATE- 2nd. ANNUAL
LEGACY RUN- 2014
On Sunday March 30 th.- 50 of the American Legion Riders 2nd Annual Florida State Legacy ride came to visit Post 274 on Fort Myers Beach to support the Legion Children s Scholarship Fund. The motorcycle column led by Art Schwabe Department of Florida Commander were greeted by a little surprise. Dan Parker Commander of Post 274 was lying in wait at San Carlos Blvd and Pine Ridge rd to escort the Harley's to their last stop for dinner hosted by the Post. As the procession stopped at the traffic light a Honda scooter joined the ranks of full sized bikes and 3 wheelers. The little scooter went to the front of the pack down to Buttonwood drive at 45 miles an hour. The laughter was loud as the pack passed in review in front of Parker standing by his BIKE in the driveway at the Post.
The day was a great success with the Legion Riders receiving over $1000 in donations for the cause.

The American Legion Riders

Today over 425 American Legion Riders programs, organized by chapters, districts, or departments, support Americanism and Children and Youth programs in virtually every state in the nation, and more are organizing each month. One of the fastest-growing and most highly visible of the many programs offered by The American Legion, The American Legion Riders are a very diverse group, and so are the programs that they support. What do American Legion Riders do? The activities are far too many to mention in this space, but here are a few examples:


American Legion Riders chapters and districts, nationally, have become some of the most generous donors for the American Legacy Scholarship Fund, raising as much as $5,000 or more in a single event.

Legion Riders participate in the annual POW/MIA Rally held each Memorial weekend in Washington D.C. known as "Rolling Thunder".

Legion Riders sponsor or participate in local and national charity events in support of the sponsoring American Legion Post.

Legion Riders ride to raise money for such organizations as local VA Hospitals, Battered Women and Children's Center, Varied Children and Youth programs, a School for Blind Children, Veterans Relief, Needy families and many, many others.

Legion Riders founded a national movement called “Patriot Guard” (www.patriotguard.org) that honors and protects the sanctity of military funerals and memorial services.

Legion Riders have formed special motorcycle Honor Guards and ceremonial teams highlighting the special bonds formed in military service and the motorcycling community.

Legion Riders have also begun to teach motorcycle and driver safety in the community and in schools in cooperation with ABATE and other national motorcycling organizations.

Remember: American Legion Riders are a very dedicated group of Legion Family members. When your Post or district sponsors a new Riders organization, you create a win/win situation for your post, district, and Department!
