Staff report

Get ready to kick-start your engines for a heartwarming cause as The American Legion Family gears up for its 15th Annual Lake Waccamaw Ride. Scheduled for Saturday, May 4, 2024, this event is not just a rally but a beacon of hope for the children supported by the Boys and Girls Homes of North Carolina.

Each year, riders from various corners come together to rev up their bikes and ride for the kids. This year, participants are expected to cruise into the Lake Waccamaw campus around noon for a communal lunch, marking a midway break in the ride that combines camaraderie and charity.

The call is out for individuals and couples alike to register as riders with a nominal fee of $15 per rider or $25 per couple. Not a rider? No problem! Opportunities to support the cause don’t end at the saddle. Community members and businesses are encouraged to become sponsors, amplifying the impact of the ride.

The ride will also feature a chapter challenge, an invigorating call to action for groups to raise funds, map out their ride, and write the largest check possible. The highest donor will earn the honor of taking home the plaque for the year, a symbol of their generous spirit and commitment to the welfare of the children.

For those ready to participate or sponsor, a quick scan of the provided QR code on the flyer will guide you to a full ride packet, detailing every step of the registration process.

Remember, every throttle twist and mile covered translates to direct support for the Boys and Girls Homes of North Carolina, an organization dedicated to providing a safe and nurturing environment for children who have been through the turbulence of family strife.

Don’t miss out on this opportunity to make a difference with each mile you ride. Mark your calendars for a day filled with purpose, pride, and the wind in your hair, all in support of a brighter future for our children. Join us at the 15th Annual Lake Waccamaw Ride and help steer a course towards hope and support for young lives across North Carolina.
