Hero's Ride: Riding to respect and remember

Riding 140 miles for fallen American heroes.

Posted: Jul 21, 2018 9:51 PM

ROCHESTER, Minn. - Nearly 200 motorcyclists took off from the Rochester Harley Davidson to ride about 140 miles around Southeast Minnesota.

The 7th annual Hero's Ride is all about remembering American men and women who have been killed in action.

"There will be a knock on the door of some family notifying them that someone in their family has either been killed in action, injured or killed or wounded," explains retired Command Sergeant Harry Kerr. "Every day there's a knock on some family's door for the cost of our freedom."

Proceeds from the ride benefit the Disabled American Veterans Chapter 28, the Rochester VFW Post 1215, and the Minnesota POW/MIA Riders Association.

The ride ended at the traveling military memorial at the Dodge County Fair.
