It’s Pam with the chrome purple sportbike from Rocket Chicks. I want to make you aware of a ride I’m hosting on Sat, Oct 22nd.
I work for Navistar in their Defense division (www.navistardefense.com). We make mine-resistant vehicles (MRAPs) that save our war fighters’ lives. One of our employees is an Army Veteran and his brother-in-law is currently serving in Afghanistan with the 3rd Brigade Combat Team, 1st Infantry Division, US Army.
I wanted to organize a ride for Morale and Welfare items for this Brigade. When I sent them an email asking what items they would like us to raise money for and send to them, they instead informed us of a memorial they want to build at Ft. Knox. It will be a dedication to the US Soldiers we have lost since 9/11. Please visit http://memorial.dukeassociation.org/index.html to learn about this memorial.
In an effort to help raise funds for the memorial, I have planned a day full of fun with a ride in the morning culminating at the Lakeview Grille (www.lakeviewgrille.com) for lunch, face painting, raffles and fun for the whole family. (The restaurant is opening just for our event. They will donate a percentage of the proceeds to the memorial).
Ride is Sat. Oct. 22nd. Check-in is at Navistar at 4201 Winfield Rd. in Warrenville from 8-8:45 a.m. Ride will be from 9 a.m. to noon. (Ride from Warrenville to Marseilles Middle East Conflicts Wall and then onto lunch at the Lakeview Grille in Yorkville). Lunch/family event will be from noon to 4 pm.
