The Arkansas Patriot Guard Riders fully support this effort to Honor the Service and Sacrifice of our Fallen Heroes who paid for our Nations Freedom. We also want to support the Gold Star Families who will be standing at their loved ones mile marker and or participating in this run. This year we’ve divided the state into 3 sections, primarily by the day. Each Day will have a Coordinator leading the efforts. Each Coordinator needs to form at least 3 teams that will leap frog each other to stand with as many families as possible. We need all the help we can get, please make yourself available to these coordinators.
