ROANOKE, Va. (WFXR) – A 110-day journey across 48 states will make its way into Roanoke this Sunday, August 11 at Roanoke Valley Harley-Davidson at 1925 Peters Creek Road at 12 p.m.
The event features motorcyclists who are in the midst of a more-than 14,000 mile trek across the country. Members of the Patriot Tour transport one American Flag from city-to-city.
The Patriot Tour, presented by the Nation of Patriots, is a 501(c)3 non-profit organization powered solely by volunteers. The group’s goal is to raise money and put all funds raised directly into the hands of veterans in need.
Nearly $1 million has been raised since the organization’s inception in 2009.
Over the last decade, riders have traveled over 166,000 miles and helped nearly 400 disabled veterans and their families. The Patriot Tour Flag has flown over The White House, on the U.S. Aircraft Carrier, the USS Independence, on an F-16 fighter jet training session over the Nevada desert and on the motorcycles of more than 1,000 proud flag bearers.
Donations can be made at any of the stops on their tour, online at http://nationofpatriots.org or by mail to: Nation of Patriots, P.O. Box 73, Sussex, Wisconsin 53089.
