OGBA Ride Online Presence

Operation God Bless America Ride XXV has gone digital online! To go along with our ever progressing website, we are now on Facebook, soon to be on Twitter and we have now set up an account with GoFundMe! We also have our ride posted on the American Legion Riders National website. You can find all these locations below.

Before the links, we want to explain a little bit about GoFundMe. We understand that not everyone can make the ride, family issues, distance, health and other uncontrollable things can cause people to miss the ride. In order to assist those that can’t make the ride, we have created a donation site on GoFundMe. From the GoFundMe about page:

The beauty of GoFundMe is that it allows campaign organizers to invite others to take part in their story. Just as we share parts of our lives on Facebook, we also want to share our dreams, pursuits, celebrations and challenges online with crowdfunding. People will always be eager to support others they care about. GoFundMe removes the physical barriers traditionally associated with receiving financial support from the people in our lives.

With this, we anticipate raising more money to help our Vets. Every little bit helps so if you can help, please do. Here’s our current online presence:

God Bless America

Working to remember our veterans.┬áSince the first “Operation God Bless America” ride in 1991, local motorcycle enthusiasts have been gathering from across the tri-state area for these rides to show support for our veterans. We want them to know that their sacrifice and the sacrifices of their families are recognized and appreciated on a continuing basis.

Whether you are a motorcyclist who rides with us, a member of a supporting organization, or a concerned citizen who gives us the thumbs up as we ride by, all levels of participation in this worthy cause are welcome.

Help us to help our veterans know that they will not be forgotten!
