2010 Operation Helping Hero’s Freedom Ride
July 16th, 17th, and 18th 2010
The Eastern PA River Runners, a local charter club of The American Watercraft Association, along with The Perry Performance Group out of Dania Beach, FL. are proud to team with The Family & Friends For Freedom Fund Inc., to raise money for this wonderful organization that aids in the recovery of our combat wounded Marines and servicemen and women from other branches of the armed forces recovering at both Bethesda Naval Hospital and Walter Reed Medical Center. The 4th Annual Operation Helping Hero’s Freedom Ride will commence with the hopes and dreams of America’s hero’s riding with us. We will set out on a journey of approximately 400 miles round trip in 3 days on personal watercraft. The journey will take the following route:
First Day at Sunrise – Friday July 16th : Depart from Sandy Point State Park in Annapolis, MD and head down the Chesapeake Bay turning up the Potomac River to Quantico Marine Corps base in Quantico, VA. for a layover that evening.
Morning of the Second Day – Saturday July 17th : Continue up the Potomac River to Leesylvania State Park in Woodbridge, VA. where they will meet up with 100 or so personal watercraft riders from around the area. The group will then travel to Washington D.C. in the hopes of raising awareness within the community and the government to the much needed help and care of America’s combat wounded Marines and servicemen and women from all branches of the armed forces. The group will then return and go to Tim’s River Shore Restaurant for lunch and a great afternoon of fun, entertainment and festivities before returning to the Marine Corps Base for the evening.
Morning of the Last Day – Sunday July 18th: The River Runners will depart from Quantico Marine Corps Base and begin their trip back to Sandy Point State Park along the same path that they arrived.
If you and your family believe and are thankful for the freedom we have, then please help those who have fought and suffered to bring us that freedom. As well as dedicating their lives to trying to free other countries. Do your part in whatever way you can to help The Family & Friends For Freedom Fund Inc. assist the fine servicemen and women who have fought with bravery for your right to live in the home of the FREE and the BRAVE.
All those who wish to participate in either the entire 3-day event, July 16,17 and 18 or the one-day only ride July 17 are required to pre-register by July 4, 2010. There will be a $25.00 registration donation per personal watercraft that will go directly to the charity organization.
For more information on the ride, how to pre-register, or how you can help please contact the Eastern PA River Runners at firstname.lastname@example.org or you can contact The Family & Friends For Freedom Fund Inc. at www.injuredmarinesfund.org
