2014 Legacy Run registration picking up

In less than two months, 265 particpants have signed up for the USAA-sponsored 2014 American Legion Legacy Run. Registration is available online here. A printable registration form is available here.

The 2014 Run leaves Indianapolis Aug. 17 and will end up in Charlotte, N.C. – site of the 2014 American Legion National Convention – on Aug. 21. A route for the run is being finalized.

Registration fees are $50 for riders, and $25 for passengers and supporters. The latter category is a new addition this year. Non-riding supporters provide much of the resources needed to conduct the Run each year – and all supporting registrations of $25 or greater will be mailed the full map book set and 2014 American Legion Legacy Run patches. Eight Legacy Runs have raised more than $4 million for The American Legion Legacy Scholarship Fund, which was established so the children of servicemembers killed on or after Sept. 11, 2001, have the opportunity to pursue a college education.

Online registration ends Aug. 9.
