Veterans helping Veterans

The Kentucky Chapter of the Combat Veterans Motorcycle Association is the first State Chapter in the CVMA. We hold meetings on an 'as need' basis. Our Mission is the same as the National CVMA, veterans helping veterans. In 2003 we sponsored and helped to organize the Annual All Patriots Ride. We raised over $22,000 worth of clothes and personal care items as well as $1500 in cash donations. The donated items are being distributed by the Lexington Hope Center, a homeless shelter in Lexington KY. The items are being stored at the VA Hospital; we were also assisted by the Lexington Volunteers of America. We gathered these organizations and almost every Motorcycle Group in Central KY to work together to help our homeless veteran brothers. Over 150 bikes show up on the day of the ride; the weather was cold and foggy but still they came. Motorcyclists can make a difference, if you are a Combat Veteran, ride a motorcycle, and are interested in helping or joining us please feel free to contact us for more information.
