Snowball Express
Snowball Express – Gerald R. Ford Intl. Airport
Grand Rapids, Michigan – 12-07-19


The Patriot Guard Riders have been invited to stand a flag-line to send off the Snowball Express.  Since 2006, the mission of Snowball Express has been a simple, yet profoundly important one: Provide hope and new happy memories to the children of military fallen heroes who have died while on active duty since 9/11.
