Austin, TX March 8, 2021 – Motorcycle Missions is proud to announce it will be a Carry The Load non-profit partner for the 2021 Memorial May campaign. As a part of Carry The Load’s Continuum of Care program, this partnership helps raise awareness and funds that are essential to helping our military, veterans, first responders and their families. All funds Motorcycle Missions raises through it’s team page now through Memorial Day 2021 will directly assist Motorcycle Missions.
“Carry The Load (www.carrytheload.org) is a national non-profit organization that inspires people to actively honor and remember the heroes who sacrificed it all for our freedom,” says Krystal Hess, Executive Director and Founder of Motorcycle Missions. “This year, Carry The Load has invited Motorcycle Missions to participate and add our own flare, on MOTORCYCLES of course!”
Here is what you can do to help us. Please help us raise money by donating and picking a date on which you will go for a motorcycle ride in honor of a veteran, military member, first responder, missing in action, or soldier who made the ultimate sacrifice. Don’t have a street bike? That’s ok, ride your dirt bike. Don’t have a dirt bike? That’s ok, ride your scooter. No scooter? Just ride your bicycle. Bicycle tires flat? Just go out your front door and start walking. Every one of you who participates in this endeavor will be helping raise money for Motorcycle Missions while raising awareness of the sacrifice so many brave men and women have made for our freedoms.
