PVR Bulletin – April 2022
FLORIDA LEGION RIDERS…
LOOKING TO SURPASS LAST YEAR’S TOTAL OF $113,532 TO END VETERAN SUICIDE!
The Florida Legion Riders kicked off their month-long efforts to raise funds and awareness for PROJECT: VetRelief’s Suicide Prevention Initiative. During this month, Chapters host rides, dinners, and other activities to earn points for the coveted District Trophy. The In-State Unity Ride and State Rally also take place: all of which the proceeds benefit PVR/SPI.
Each year, they set the bar higher and higher on the amount of support they provide our SPI program. However, the Legion Riders know their veteran community is counting on them and are always up for the challenge! They brought in nearly $115,000 last year, and want to raise more this year.
WAYS TO SUPPORT THE FLORIDA LEGION RIDERS:
al’s page, to an ALR Chapter Team page, or donate directly to the entire event efforts. However you choose to support, your generosity will be applied towards the joint cause of ending veteran suicide!
► Join the In-State Unity Ride – The Ride will be split into two routes: Atlantic and Gulf. Both routes will start from Lake City, FL which will include a Meet & Greet on Sunday, April 24th, and officially begin the next day (April 25th). Riders will stop at American Legion Posts along the way to collect donations. During the last day, both routes will team up to ride together and end in Tampa, FL.
We hope everyone will sign up and we encourage you to create your fundraising page. The more funds you raise to end veteran suicide the more COOL PRIZES you’ll earn.
► Ride Virtually – If you are unable to attend the actual ride, we have the Virtual Rider ($5) option. You can ride at least 22 miles and post a photo on your social media account using #iRideforthe22. Virtual Riders will be eligible for the COOL PRIZES, too.
► Make a Donation – Make your donation to an individual’s page, to an ALR Chapter Team page, or donate directly to the entire event efforts. However you choose to support, your generosity will be applied towards the joint cause of ending veteran suicide!
► Visit a Post Stop – Our riders would love to see your smiling faces as they pull into their next pit stop along their journey. Check out the Route agendas and plan to welcome them in from the road!
► Attend the State Rally – Upon completion of the In-State Unity Ride, April 30th, a Rally will be held in celebration at the OCC Road House & Museum in Clearwater. There will be live music, vendors, and raffles. The Rally is open to the public at no cost!
