American Legion Legacy Run
August 17-22, 2013
Indianapolis, Indiana to Houston, Texas

Motorcycle enthusiasts and supporters from all over the world will join in a rally Aug. 17, 2013, hosted by The American Legion Riders of Indiana to raise money for scholarships, which are awarded to the children of military members who have died on duty since Sept. 11, 2001. Sponsored by USAA, The Legacy Run is the largest multistate, multiday cross-country motorcycle event in the United States.

The Riders will begin the 1,500-mile journey early on Sunday, Aug. 18, and travel through Indiana, Illinois, Missouri, Oklahoma and Texas. They will arrive in Houston on the afternoon of Aug. 22. The ride will stop along the way for events arranged by Legionnaires and Legion Riders chapters along the route. Plans include visits with wounded warriors, lunches and dinners hosted by local American Legion posts and a special visit with USAA dignitaries and injured warriors in Killeen, Texas.

Registration information is available at All who register will receive the Legacy Run map book (including Rider travel information to include exact routes, scheduled stops, timetables, daily maps and checkpoint locations), vest patch and other material, whether they participate or not.

The registration fees will help offset the costs of the American Legion Legacy Run. Every dollar donated directly to the American Legacy Scholarship Fund will go directly to educating a fallen comrade’s son or daughter.
