D-28 Veterans Suicide Awareness Run

Time: 9:00 am to 4:00 pm


Riders,

 American Legion Riders (ALR) Department of California (DoC) has designated Saturday, February 22nd, 2020 as Veteran Suicide Awareness Day.  All American Legion Rider Chapters in California will use this day to bring awareness that 22 veterans and active duty commit suicide each day.  We want everyone to pay attention to our veterans and provide mental and emotional support for veterans in need.

 This year ALR DoC Area 2 has designated ALR District 28 as the host for Area 2 to raise as much funds as possible to support Veterans Mental Health Issues.  We will have a poker run with high & low poker winner, tri-tip lunch, 50/50 drawing, and raffle prizes.  Please publish the attached flyer and spread the word as much as possible. 

We are also requesting that all Legion, Auxiliary, SAL, and ALR Chapters provide raffle prizes and/or money to purchase raffle prizes for this event.
