A patriotic group of local bikers will ride in honor of fallen police officers on Sunday, through parts of Niagara and Erie counties, the group's president announced this week.
The Legion Riders of American Legion Post 264 in Tonawanda will host its first Badge of Honor Association benefit run at noon Sunday, departing from American Harley Davidson, 1149 Erie Ave., North Tonawanda.
The ride ends at American Legion Post 264, 43 Main St., Tonawanda.
"This is an opportunity for veterans and other patriots to link arms with our communities' defenders, the police who put their lives on the line every day - and to honor those that sacrificed themselves keeping the rest of us safe," said Thomas Moss, president of Legion Riders Chapter 264. "Obviously, as wartime veterans, we appreciate these officers as brothers who fought for the same cause we did: namely, peace at home."
The benefit ride will also benefit Buddy's Second Chance Rescue in Kenmore.
Deep Eddy Vodka and the Deep Eddy Girls will be on-hand offering tastings of their product.
Registration for the ride runs from 10:30 a.m. to noon at American Harley Davidson. Kickstands-up will be at 12:15 p.m. The registration fee is $10 per rider and $10 per passenger.
The Badge of Honor Association is a not-for-profit organization that exists to honor men and women in law enforcement who gave the ultimate sacrifice and those who go above and beyond the call of duty.
Buddy's Second Chance Rescue is a nonprofit foster-based dog rescue in Western New York that saves dogs from various high-kill shelters to help decrease euthanasia rates of innocent dogs. Buddy's Second Chance Rescue brings the dogs to Western New York where they live with their foster family until they can be placed in loving forever homes.
