Legacy Run through Illinois In August

The 2022 Legacy run is scheduled to run through Illinois on August 24 with stops in Bloomington and Marseilles. Since 2006, American Legion Riders have made it an annual mission to roll thousands of miles as a group every summer along the nation’s roadways – rain or shine, mountains or deserts – to raise college money for young people whose parents sacrificed some or all of their lives in defense of our nation. Along the way, Legacy Run participants have paid respects at memorial sites, laid wreaths at the graves of fallen military men and women, met surviving families and have shown the nation – gathered to wave flags alongside roads and on overpasses across the land – just what it means to ride for a “cause, not applause.” 2022 Route Announcement and Legacy Run Brochure and Schedule / Stops
