WE SALUTE – Florida Legion Riders

The Florida American Legion Riders and PROJECT: VetRelief teamed up for the month of April to bring awareness to prevention, action and treatment in an effort to stop Veteran suicide. This is the first event that focused around the new initiative our program put forth last June.
The Riders kicked off a week-long Unity Ride event at Post 138 in Tampa on April 7th. From there, they made their way round the entire state of Florida stopping at various Posts to raise awareness and collect donations.
The ride concluded back in Tampa at Post 111 where they celebrated with the Statewide Rally. Food, raffles, silent auction and live entertainment was provided, along with wonderful memories.
Their work isn’t finished yet! Riders have the entire month of April to host local rides within their communities and raise more awareness and collect donations. The final results will be announced during the Department Convention in June.


All of PROJECT: VetRelief’s financial support comes from the generosity of individuals and corporations who believe in what we do. Join us for one of our next events, or hold your own fundraiser.
If you are interested, please contact Jennifer Cooper at 407-295-2631 or jcooper@floridalegion.org.
