Road March for Warriors is a grass roots effort to support a broad range of Veteran’s causes across East Tennessee. We are seeking all veterans, their family members and friends to participate. REGISTER TODAY.

RM4W 2008 will take place at 3 locations around Knoxville and seeks both motorcycle riders and non-riders. All participants are encouraged to visit all three locations.

START:

Attendees will be asked to donate cash and an item for the Veterans to be distributed at the VA hospital or the Atchley State Veterans Home. Veteran services organizations will be available to help Veterans learn how to obtain available benefits. Booths representing the Wounded Warrior Project, East Tennessee Veterans Memorial, Hometown to Heroes, and more will be available. Our goal is to sign up Veterans in need of the services provided by these organizations. A list of needed items s will be posted on the webpage, www.roadmarchforwarriors.com.
