Groundcrew Age Restriction

Category : Information

Please be aware that due to the nature of THE VIPER RIDE event we do have a minimum age restriction for volunteers. For the safety of all participants and the event as a whole, no one under the age of seventeen (17) will be considered or allowed to participate as a VIPER GROUNDCREW VOLUNTEER. This age restriction does not apply to members of youth organizations such as the Boy Scouts or Girl Scouts, who are volunteering and participating as an organization under direct adult supervision (i.e. Scoutmasters, etc.)  

Thank you for your understanding!

Did you know?

Category : Information

There are 132,000 blind veterans nationwide.

Blindness leads to isolation, isolation leads to depression, and depression leads to bad things…

22 veterans commit suicide every day.

We can make a difference because we as motorcycle riders know being on, or even around, a motorcycle makes us feel more alive. We believe we can bring excitement, joy, and liveliness to veterans who may quietly and secretly need something extra in their lives. It is entirely possible that this event could literally save a Veteran’s life.

Please join us in making a difference in the life of a blind or visually impaired Vet!
