American Legion Riders chapters are well known for their charitable work, which has raised hundreds
of thousands of dollars for local children's hospitals, schools, veterans homes, severely wounded
servicemembers and scholarships. Since 2006, Riders nationwide have participated in The American
Legion Legacy Run to annually raise money for the Legacy Scholarship Fund, established to provide
scholarships to children of U.S. military personnel killed since Sept. 11, 2001

Currently, over 110,000 American Legion Riders meet in over 2,000 chapters in every domestic
department and in at least three foreign countries. Riders in Iowa have formed an honor guard
called The Five Star Freedom Riders, and Riders in Mulvane, Kan., founded the Patriot Guard to
protect the sanctity of military funerals from protesters. Riders in all states have escorted military
units returning home from combat tours overseas, conducted massive cross-country fundraising
events for wounded warriors from all services, and have raised millions of dollars for countless local,
state and national charities. Many Riders, supported by their departments, conduct annual statewide
Legacy Runs in direct support of American Legion scholarship progras of Operation Comfort
Warriors (OCW), supporting our wounded servicemembers across the nation.  

True to the Legion's grassroots tradition, each chapter manages its programs at the post level, where
the best ideas are born. The Riders are part of many projects and events, including:

Ÿ
Rolling Thunder, the annual POW/MIA rally in Washington on Memorial Day weekend.
Ÿ
Annual regional rides such as Operation Wounded Warrior, sponsored by Riders in Nevada,
     Texas, New Mexico, Utah, Arizona, California and other Western states.
Ÿ
Local charity events in support of The American Legion and local communities.
Ÿ
Raising money for VA hospitals, women and children centers, children and youth centers,
     schools and other facilities.
Ÿ
Sponsoring or participating in motorcycle runs to benefit numerous charities.
Ÿ
Local memorial ceremonies and community parades.
Ÿ
The American Legion Legacy Run, an annual cross-country fundraising ride from National
     Headquarters in Indianapolis to the national convention city.
Ÿ
Riding to honor fallen military men and women, and to protect the sanctity of their funerals from
     those who would dishonor their memory.
Ÿ
Escorting military units to departure airfields and airports for combat tours overseas, and
     welcoming them home upon their return.
