CVMA Ride for 22

This will be a ride that is a joint effort between CVMA Chapters 18-8 and 27-4 to bring awareness to Veteran Suicide, so we can continue to lower the "22 A Day" statistic. Registration will be held at Stateline Indian, where we will step off on a 222 mile ride across Virginia on Route 58 to Roanoke

About the Event

This will be a 222 mile ride from Stateline Indian (Bristol, VA) to Mission BBQ in Roanoke VA Via route 58 to 220 that is meant to raise funds for organizations and bring awareness to the issue. As Combat Veterans, we all have to battle demons daily. Unfortunatley, some still give in to the war within. As the veteran community has rallied together, along with the assistance of those in the community that support our Veterans; this number was originally 22 per day. As of 2020 statistics, the number has dropped to 17.6 per day. 1 is still to many, so, until we reach zero, being our brothers keeper will remain a mission of the veteran community and its supporters. Come out and support the veteran community, donations are welcome on the site and at the event. 

The event will start at StateLine Indian and be a guided ride to Mission BBQ in Roanoke taking the beautiful route 58 and 220.
