For the past seven years, Eagles Nest IMB, an Oklahoma based non-profit group of motorcycle riders, raises money all year long through a wide variety of events, including the weekly American Hero Jam, to support the annual American Hero Ride, which happens every Memorial Day weekend.
The American Hero Ride features a 400 mile ride from Tulsa to the Veterans Spinal Hospital in Memphis Tennessee where the funds collected throughout the year are presented to the wounded Veterans. These funds have provided for support of programs that these brave Veterans would otherwise not have, such as cable TV, recreation center, Special Olympics and living quarters for loved ones while hospitalized. Money is also raised along the ride and celebrations with the VFWs go on nightly.
Eagles Nest has not only supported them with only money but, they have presented them custom appreciation medals, live music, food and some serious loving that many of them otherwise would not receive.
Mark your calendars for the next annual American Hero Ride on the weekend of May 24-26, 2013!
