    The Eastern PA River Runners
    2011 Operation Helping Hero’s Freedom Ride
    July 15th, 16th, and 17th 2011

    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. and Sgt. Grit’s Marine Specialties out of Oklahoma City, OK 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 5th 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 15th: 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 16th :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 17th: 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.
    What we are in search of on this ride is the support by presence of every personal watercraft club, rider and enthusiast in and around the surrounding area as well as those who wish to travel to ride for this great cause, to join us on Saturday July 16th at Leesylvania State Park at 10:00 a.m. for a ride to Washington D.C. to raise “ Awareness By Presence” and then head back to Tim’s River Shore Restaurant for a great time.
    Check in time for the ride on Saturday July 16th begins at 7:30 a.m. until 9:20 a.m. at the launch ramp area to the left of the main pavilion (if facing the Potomac River) where the sailboat hoists are located. There will be a mandatory riders meeting at 9:30 a.m. and we will depart for Washington D.C. promptly at 10:00 a.m.
    All those who wish to participate in either the entire 3 day event July 15 ,16 and 17 or the 1 day only ride to Washington D.C on July 16 are required to pre-register by July 10, 2011. There will be a $10.00 registration donation per personal watercraft. Along with your donation, your name will be entered into a raffle drawing of great prizes to be held on July 23, 2011. All donations collected will go directly to The Family and Friends For Freedom Fund Inc. Registration information is available on our website at www.easternpariverrunners.org or you may contact us at [email protected]
    If you and your family believe and are thankful for the freedom we have, then help those who have fought and suffered to bring us that freedom. Please give back to those who gave so much. Do your part in whatever way you can to help The Family And Friends For Freedom Fund Inc .assist the fine servicemen and women who have fought so bravely for your right to live in the home of the FREE and the BRAVE.

    Hello Everyone,

    I just thought I would drop by and stir things up a little bit and try to get as many of you to register for our 5th Annual Operation Helping Hero's Freedom Ride this summer.

    In addition to the ride we will be having a raffle on July 23, 2011. With your $10.00 registration fee you will get 7 tickets for the raffle automatically and then tickets will be sold 3 for $5.00 and 7 for $10.00 with all money raised going directly to the charity.

    Please support us and The Family & Friends For Freedom Fund Inc this year by coming out to the ride and sharing the day with all of us.

    More information on the ride and how to register can be found on our website at www.easternpariverrunners.org

    Thanks

    This sounds like a great ride for a great cause. The Saturday ride sounds like fun if you get the turnout you're hoping for. I hope someone gets pictures of a 100+ waverrunners all together. Is anyone on the East coast going to this event ?
    I went on the clubs web site and made a donation to the cause and looked at the clubs pictures. These seem like a great group of people with a love of riding. Cool stuff thank you for sharing. I plan on sending in an application to join the club.
