Run For The Wall is an annual motorcycle ride with veterans, friends and family riding across the United States to accomplish their mission which is to promote healing among all veterans and their families and friends; to call for an accounting of all Prisoners of War and those Missing in Action (POW/MIA); to honor the memory of those Killed in Action (KIA) from all Wars; and to support our military personnel all over the world.
Run For The Wall begins on May 14, in Rancho Cucamonga, California, and culminates with participation in Rolling Thunder’s “Ride For Freedom” in Washington, DC on May 25. Riders also lay a wreath on May 24 at the Tomb of the Unknowns in Arlington National Cemetery.
