2016 Jacket Ride Recap

Thank you to everyone who came out to support Veteran Scholarships during the 2016 Jacket Ride! We had a great ride accompanied by bluebird skies, excellent food, a few good laughs, and shared some tears. We even had a surprise visit from Celebrity Adam Richmon from "Man vs. Food". See you again in 2017!
