Growth is nothing new to The American Legion Riders. Each year the Riders have broken records for funds raised during the annual Legacy Run. That extended to last summer, when the Riders brought in more than $1.2 million for the fund that provides college scholarships for the children of parents who died while on active-duty military service on or after Sept. 11, 2001, as well as the children of post-9/11 veterans with a Department of Veterans Affairs disability rating of 50 percent or higher.
But the Riders aren’t growing just in terms of money they’ve raised. Recently, the number of American Legion Rider chapters hit 2,000 nationwide. Since March 31 alone, 115 chapters have been formed – an average of more than 40 a month. The Riders continue to be the fastest-growing program in The American Legion.
