The American Legion Riders are a Program of the American Legion. Beyond our love of motorcycles, we are dedicated to raising funds for Charities such as, The American Legion Legacy Fund, Veteran Suicide Prevention and Homeless Veteran needs.
The American Legion Legacy Fund was an existing program of the American Legion that the Legion Riders nationwide took on as their own. 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, veteran’s 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.
Our Veterans outreach efforts are evolving in ways we could not have imagine three years ago. From our beginnings to today our Chapter has helped many homeless veterans get off the streets and into homes, helped many veterans get their VA benefits and this year we were able to intervene and stop two veteran suicides. Over all in the last three years we have stopped five Veteran’s from stepping into the abyss.
Currently, over 110,000 American Legion Riders meet in over 2,000 chapters in every state and in at least three foreign countries. Riders in Iowa have formed an honor guard called The Five Star Freedom Riders, and Riders in Mulvane, Kan., founded the Patriot Guard to protect the sanctity of military funerals from protesters. Riders in all states have escorted military units returning home from combat tours overseas, conducted massive cross-country fundraising events for wounded warriors from all services, and have raised millions of dollars for countless local, state and national charities. Many Riders, supported by their State Departments, conduct annual statewide Legacy Runs in direct support of American Legion scholarship programs of Operation Comfort Warriors (OCW), supporting our wounded servicemembers across the nation.
· True to the Legion's grassroots tradition, each chapter manages its programs at the post level, where the best ideas are born. The Riders are part of many projects and events, including:
· Rolling Thunder, the annual POW/MIA rally in Washington on Memorial Day weekend.
· Local charity events in support of The American Legion and local communities.
· Raising money for VA hospitals, women and children centers, children and youth centers, schools and other facilities.
· Sponsoring or participating in motorcycle runs to benefit numerous charities.
· Local memorial ceremonies and community parades.
· Riding to honor fallen military men and women, and to protect the sanctity of their funerals from those who would dishonor their memory.
· Escorting military units to departure airfields and airports for combat tours overseas, and welcoming them home upon their return.
We want to thank everyone who took the time to stop by our booth at the Fryeburg Fair this year and donate. So, the next time you see us out and about raising funds stop and say hi and ask how you can join the Team.

If you are a Veteran with an honorable discharge or still on active duty, we need you. Your military mission may be over but life is full of missions and some of your buddies still need your help. The American Legions Mission is to help our Veterans. After all we are Veterans too and have been where you have been and been through what you have been through. We need you, your buddies need you. Without your help our mission will fail.
