American Legion Riders chapters are well known for their charitable work, which has raised hundreds of thousands of dollars for local children's hospitals, schools, veterans homes, severely wounded service members and scholarships. Since 2006, Riders nationwide have participated in The American Legion Legacy Run to annually raise money for the Legacy Scholarship Fund, established to provide scholarships to children of U.S. military personnel killed since Sept. 11, 2001.
We're just getting started with our new Chapter here in Clovis, California. The American Legion Riders (ALR) are members of our American Legion Family, who are also motorcycle enthusiasts. We all belong to the American Legion, the American Legion Auxiliary or the Sons of the American Legion. American Legion Chapter members pictured here are placing over 500 U.S. Flags at the Clovis Cemetery in preparation for the Avenue of Flags Ceremony and Memorial Day Services.

The Legacy Fund provides college scholarships to the children of U.S. military personnel killed while on active duty on or after Sept. 11, 2001, as well as for children of post-9/11 veterans with a combined disability rating of 50 percent or greater by the Department of Veterans Affairs. This year’s total marked the eighth time the Legacy Run has surpassed $1 million raised for the Legacy Fund and has raised more than $16 million since 2006.
