IL Freedom Run 6/15- Chicago Area

The Middle East Conflicts Wall is located along the Illinois River in Marseilles, IL. The wall honors service members who have paid the ultimate sacrifice for freedom in conflicts from 1979 to present. It's a very powerful sight to see. I hope to start getting the word out....

This Saturday (6/15) is the 10th anniversary of the memorial. This wall was created and supported by volunteers and donations. An annual ride is held to honor those individuals and their families who's names are listed on the wall.

The donations from the ride help with the cost of adding names to the wall and to assist the veterans and their families.

For those interested-
The start of the run is at the Grundy County Fairgrounds in Morris IL (I-80 and rte 47). Line up starting at 6. Depart at 1030. Ceremony at 1pm at the wall. Celebration of our freedom 3-11pm in Marseilles, IL.

This is a great time and a great cause. This will my 4 year. I just wanted to put this out there for any local riders. I hope to see you there.

Any questions hit me up.
