Veterans Matter Ride of Honor

Online registration is now closed. We will see you at the park.

The starting location is the Vietnam Memorial at Heck Park in Monroe Michigan (1095 N. Dixie Hwy) and then ending here in Toledo at the Toledo Memorial Gardens.

Join us on Sunday, September 16th in honoring veterans and celebrating the 100 year Anniversary of the American Legion in an escorted ride from the Vietnam Veteran Memorial in Monroe Heck Park to the Veterans Memorial Tower in Toledo Memorial Park.

In honor of the Legion and all of those who have served, our goal is to house ten more homeless veterans at $750 each. 

Large Honor Ride Trophies will go to the largest team, as well as to the team housing the most veterans.  

Registration begins at 8.30 with the ride starting at 10:00am.  Cost is $15 per bike- patch included. To save the line you can register here. Then become a fundraiser if you want your club or group to be a team.

Food, refreshments and entertainment to follow at the Conn-Weissenberger American Legion.

Ride with us! And if you can't join us but want to help, you can use this platform to donate and/or raise funds to help get ten more veterans housed. Thank you.

About Veterans Matter
To date we have housed over 2,300 homeless Veterans. At an average cost of $750, this is an insurmountable obstacle for you if you are the homeless veteran living on the streets.

There are 40,000 to go.

The demand this year is twice that of last year, they need us now. Please join us by riding to help in raising funds.

How it Works

Veterans Matter was created in Toledo, Ohio to house 35 local veterans. Urged on by Dusty Hill, John Mellencamp and Mitch Albom to help them house veterans in their home states, founder Ken Leslie created an efficient on-line cloud-based system to help them accomplish this goal.
This system, and partnership with the VA, gives us unheard of efficiencies: Veterans Matter has a 100% success rate housing veterans in a long-term VA program that has a 91% success rate keeping them housed! This efficiency also allows us to have a documented VERY low admin rate of 8%.
