Online registration for the 2017 American Legion Legacy Run is now available. This year's ride will leave Fort Dodge, Kan., Aug. 12 and travel west to Reno, Nev., the site for the 2017 American Legion National Convention. The cross-country motorcycle ride raises funds for The American Legion Legacy Fund, which provides college money for the children of U.S. military personnel killed on active duty on or after Sept. 11, 2001, as well as the children of post-9/11 veterans with a VA disability rating of 50-percent or higher. Last year's Legacy Run raised more than $1 million for the second straight year. For more information and to register, visit the Legacy Run Registration webpage.
