Jesse’s Warrior Mission Motorcycle Ride Saturday
Staff Sgt. Jesse Lee Williams lost his life in Afghanistan on a military mission. A Blackhawk helicopter carrying Sgt. Williams and six others was brought down by the enemy Dec. 17, 2013.
In the same way Williams helped others, his friends have formed the group, Jesse’s Warriors, to raise funds for service members overseas.
All are invited to participate in the first-ever Jesse’s Warrior Mission Motorcycle Ride Saturday. The ride will be escorted by police, fire and military motorcycle clubs. The public is invited to show support by lining the mission route.
Registration will begin at 10:30 a.m. at Hoosier Harley Davidson, 720 W. Bristol St., in Elkhart. The 50-mile mission ride will begin at noon and conclude with live music, food and beverages. Donation to participate is $15 per rider or $25 for a rider and passenger. Commemorative T-shirts will be available for the first 200 riders.
Traffic delays are expected. For details, call James Ballard at 360-7152.
