A True Motorcycle Enthusiast Event

2013 Ride for Our Heroes

The 2013 Ride for Our Heroes to benefit the Red Sox Foundation and Massachusetts General Hospital Home Base Program is on Saturday, October 5th.  The Ride is hosted by Manchester Harley-Davidson.  Starting locations for the Ride include the Londerry Park & Ride in Londonderry, NH and the Upper Deck in Salisbury, MA.  The Ride concludes with an afterparty at Manchester Harley-Davidson featuring a live band, vendors and food from Boston's Baddest Burger and Sandwich Shop and The Pasta Pot.

The support of the riders, passengers and concert attendees helped make this event a tremendous success, raising much needed funds for the Home Base Program and strengthens the program's important mission of providing clinical care and support services to New England-area service members, veterans and families affected by combat stress or tramautic brain injury; offering education for the community and clinicians on these "invisible wounds of war," and conducting research in the understanding and treatment of post traumatic stress (PTSD) and traumatic brain injury (TBI).

Last year's event was a truly inspiring day, as over 600 riders, passengers and concert attendees gathered to honot our nation's service members, veterans and familes and raised over $26,000 for the Home Base Program.  Join us on October 5th and make this year's event the best yet.

Register on site at the starting locations.  Registration is $25/bike and $40 with passenger.
