    Smile 2010 Operation Helping Hero's Freedom Ride

    The Eastern PA River Runners



    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 info@easternpariverrunners.org or you can contact The Family & Friends For Freedom Fund Inc. at www.injuredmarinesfund.org

    Thank You

    That would be great. Just let us know in advance, especially if you plan on doing the entire 3-day because that fills quickly since it is limited.

    Thanks and Happy Holidays to you. Please spread the word around as well.

    Hello Everyone,

    As the weather is somewhat starting to get warmer and a lot of you are starting to get ready for the upcoming season, its time to start palnning where you might be heading out this summer.

    Our 4th Annual Operation Helping Hero's Freedom Ride is now a little under 4 months away and you can now register for the ride at our website at www.easternpariverrunners.org Please try and register as early as possible to secure your spot on the ride. If you are planning on doing the full 3 day ride please register soon as there are only a few spots left for that portion of the ride.

    Thanks again for all of your support and thanks to Greenhulk for supporting our event every year.

    Thanks

With that thought in mind we would like to start getting a rough idea of how many people will be attending this years Operation Helping Hero's Freedom Ride in July. You can register by going to our website at www.easternpariverrunners.org and on our homepage you will see a link that says " Click For Registration Form " that will have the information that you will need. If you are unable to make the registration donation at the present time please fill out and send your registration form in anyway as you will have until July 4th to submit your registration donation for the ride. Just let us know when you send the form in when you will be able to send in your donation so we can keep track of things.

    We are trying to see who is planning on going on the 1 day ride on July 17 as well as those who might be thinking about the full 3 day event. We have quite a few items that some of our sponsors are giving to the full 3 day event riders, so register soon.

    We are also getting ready to post on our website the items we will be raffling off on the Saturday July 17th part of the ride.
