What is Annual Heroes Run
A charity fundraiser benefiting PGRNY HOTH (Help on the Homefront) and New York Warrior Alliance hosted by the Patriot Guard Riders of New York. Both of these organizations are 100% volunteer and 100% of donations they received are used to assist our wounded veterans, their caregivers, families of the fallen and basically those in crisis that have suffered service connected disabilities. This assistance is provided to fill their otherwise unmet needs.

What an Event!
We were all worried what the weather would be, especially with the thunderstorm we had about 6:30am. But God saw fit to bring us a beautiful day for our dedication ride to Greece Town Hall and to Lakeview Cemetery in Brockport to dedicate lasting memorials to NYS Trooper Andrew J Sperr and Staff SGT Nicholas J Reid, respectively. Then back to a beautiful ceremony at St Paul Exempts, where the Karpus Family Foundation presented a check for $10,000 and Medal of Honor recipient Gary Beikirch gave a very moving talk. As well as, both Amy Tausch founder and CEO of New York Warrior Alliance and Dave Kern State Captain of the Patriot Guard Riders of New York spoke.
The event organizers would like to thank the entire committee, our performers and all attendees for making this event our biggest and best yet! Photos are still coming in and may be viewed on our Facebook page.
Thank you Cristina Domingues for arranging our interview with Virginia Butler to promote our 4th Annual Heroes Run tomorrow. Cristina will be the MC tomorrow at our event and we are so grateful for her support of our organizations!
Check Out This Year's Event!
Our event starts with motorcycle (vehicles welcomed) run to the hometowns of the heroes we are honoring this year. The run returns to the event location at St Paul Exempts where we will hold a tribute ceremony honoring not only our heroes but their families, letting them know they are not forgotten. After the ceremony the rest of the afternoon is great food, our famous chicken BBQ or hots and burgers, plus side dishes, continuation of our musical entertainment and of course raffles and silent auctions. Hope to see you there!
