In Abilene, we will be raising funds for two amazing veterans organizations, Chapter 36 of and Texas Hunters for Heroes (West Texas Chapter).

As a veteran, I feel it’s my duty and honor to do everything in my power to help my brothers and sisters in arms. Many veterans, in all communities, face issues like unemployment, homelessness, poor mental health (including suicide), physical handicap, and so much more. I wouldn’t be alive today if it weren’t for my relationship with my battle buddy from the Army. Many veterans don’t have the resources and relationships necessary to get them through the darkest of times.

So, let’s band together to help those selfless warriors.

This year's event will take place May 2nd through 14th, while the overall fundraising efforts will extend through the end of May.

Like last year, we'll be visiting Midland/Odessa (May 2nd), Lubbock (May 3rd), Amarillo (May 4th), Lawton (May 5th), Wichita Falls (May 6th), Tyler/Longview (May 10th), Temple/Killeen (May 11th), Austin (May 12th), and Abilene (May 14th).

In addition to the ride, we'll be having The Ride for Change Poker Run and Party on the Patio at Kent's Harley-Davidson on Saturday, May 14th.
