AMVETS Issues 'Rolling To Remember' Challenge
Updated: Apr 14, 2020
WASHINGTON D.C. - For 32 years every Memorial Day, action has been taken to raise awareness for the critical issues facing our nation’s veterans. In 2020, AMVETS will continue the tradition through the Rolling to Remember Challenge.
As always, the health and safety of our riders and the veteran community is our top priority. Due to the federal and state restrictions on public gatherings and the guidance of public health officials amid the COVID-19 pandemic, the Rolling to Remember motorcycle demonstration will not take place in Washington, D.C.
Instead, we are asking each of you to ride 22 miles on Sunday, May 24, 2020 in your local communities. Here’s how you can participate:
· Sign up to ride
· Ride 22 miles on May 24 and/or DONATE.
Of course, we encourage all riders to monitor and observe state and local guidelines on social distancing. Please join AMVETS leadership at 6:00pm CT / 7:00 PM EST today at AMVETS National Headquarter's Facebook page for the official announcement.
As we remain committed to advocate for the 82,000 prisoners of war and those missing in action as well as the lives lost to veteran suicide, we are asking all participants and those passionate about our mission to sign a petition to demand action from Congress. You can sign the petition here now through May 23.
We appreciate your support and flexibility during an unprecedented time in our nation’s history. We look forward to coming together, even stronger than before, to continue this important tradition in-person in 2021.
