Motorcycle Ride Aims to Raise $100K for Memorial

Motorcycle riders are revving their engines for a charity ride that they hope raises $100,000 for a memorial at the National Guard Center in Frankfort. Volunteers are raising money for the Labor Day weekend ride, called Ride II Remember, which is on Sept. 2.

The money raised will be used for the construction of a memorial at the entrance to Boone National Guard Center in Frankfort.

More than 1,000 motorcycle riders will be departing from more than a dozen cities during the ride.

The Guard says the memorial is intended to honor all Kentucky Guard members who have served in any duty status from 1912 to the present. A total of f$1.2 million is needed for the construction of the memorial.
