Legion Riders Events
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.

Wreaths Across America
The Riders will be leading the Post 29 family once again to sponsor this year's Wreath Across American (WAA) campaign. We'll be helping Georgia National Cemetery and Marietta National Cemetery to Remember and Honor our veterans by laying Remembrance wreaths on the graves of our country's fallen heroes on December 18. These two cemeteries need approximately 35,000 wreaths. Our goal is to sponsor 125 wreaths. Help us exceed that goal by sponsoring remembrance wreaths!
