UPDATE: The health and safety of our nation’s veterans, families & fellow patriots, is our first priority, always. We are working closely with federal, state & local agencies to build contingency plans for Rolling to Remember, which is still nine weeks away. The 82,000 POW/MIA and the veterans suicide epidemic must not be forgotten. We will continue the tradition. Updates and more will be posted here and on our social media platforms.
For 32 years, there has been a motorcycle demonstration on Memorial Day weekend to raise awareness of the critical issues facing our nation’s veterans and demand action for the 82,000 service members missing in action.
On May 24, 2020, the tradition will continue through the Rolling to Remember Challenge. For the first time in ride history, we will also demand action for the 22 veterans who die by suicide each day.
Due to the COVID-19 health crisis and to protect the safety of the riding community, AMVETS announces the Rolling to Remember Ride Challenge in conjunction with the REVER (motorcycle app).
This challenge empowers individual riders nationwide to ride in their own community and demand action and will track all participation through the REVER app. By tracking our participation, in our local communities we are hoping to show Congress that this is not just an issue that happens in Washington, DC on one day, but rather, there is support across the country. In addition, we are asking ALL Americans to sign our petition which will be delivered to Congress.
The Rolling to Remember Challenge will take place in communities across America on May 24. We are urging all riders to ride 22 miles in their community to mark the occasion. In addition, we are asking that you only do so in compliance with state and local laws.
This mission is important and that’s why we must continue the tradition but do so in a way that bears in mind our own personal health and safety. Please join us!
The message will be clear throughout: we will never forget our POWs and MIAs, and we won’t stop fighting for real solutions to the suicide crisis.
