On the morning of November 7, 2014, 50 Fire Hogs and friends from both chapters of the Fire Hogs made the journey from Orange County Harley Davidson to Camp Pendleton in support of the Injured Warriors. What a great feeling it gave us as we joined the 300 other bikers who all made the escorted journey.
As we traveled the highways to Camp Pendleton I was amazed at the honor the procession was given by all other travelers. Traveling the roads through Camp Pendleton, we were astonished to see members of the military at attention and saluting our group as we passed by. It was a humbling experience knowing we were there to help these heroes but it was they that were honoring us.
Once at Camp Pendleton we enjoyed a great lunch, met the commander and event organizers, and were rewarded with the knowledge that we had raised more than $70,000 that day. As it turned out that amount was enough to purchase seven motorized wheel chairs for the Vets in need. I have to say the Fire Hogs were by far the single biggest group in attendance.
In true Fire Hog fashion, at the end of the event, the only volunteers left to pick up the table and chairs were the Fire Hogs. It was a very rewarding day to say the least.
There are many more rides coming up! You don’t have to be a Fire Hog to participate. All you need is a willingness to have fun. Come on out to see what this is all about. Events are posted on our website www.firehogs.org.
