Wes & Trent's Ride-a-Thon for Vets

Beginning Memorial Day Weekend, 2017, the father and son team of Wes and Trent Stephenson are attempting the 48 States in 10 Day motorcycle challenge as outlined by The Iron Butt Association. They are doing this as a fundraiser for The Independence Fund, a non-profit organization focused on providing disabled veterans with mobility devices such as tank-tracked all-terrain wheelchairs that will allow them to participate in outdoor activities that might otherwise be impossible to enjoy. We are suggesting pledges of $1 per state we visit and that you double this if we complete the journey within the ten day target ($96 contribution) but any amount is appreciated by the veterans and by their spouses and children. This program really makes a positive difference to them all.
