THE VIPER RIDE could not succeed without the help and support of our generous, engaged partners, sponsors, supporters, and donating organizations and individuals.

Thank you for your support!



ALRA The American Legion Riders Association of Wisconsin (District 4 & 5) will provide required safety checks and vehicle certifications for the ride. Formation of the American Legion Riders occurred in Garden City, Michigan in 1993. Since then, groups have been formed throughout the country. The concept was for a family oriented motorcycle association that would operate within the American Legion, consisting of members of the American Legion, Auxiliary and Sons of the Legion who shared an interest in motorcycling.



BVA The Blinded Veterans Association of Wisconsin (BVA-WI) is a state charter of the national BVA organization, with a current membership of approximately 170 blind or visually impaired veterans. This statewide organization is the primary source for our VIPs (Visually Impaired Patriots), who will be our dignified guests and motorcycle passengers (TAILGUNNERs) at THE VIPER RIDE event. The BVA strives to promote the welfare of blinded veterans so that, notwithstanding their disabilities, they may take their rightful place in the community and work with their fellow citizens toward the creation of a peaceful world.
ophg Operation HighGround is a not-for-profit organization that caters to the needs of homeless, unemployed, disadvantaged, and other downtrodden veterans throughout the Midwest. OpHG is organized to identify and implement strategies to help veterans find and obtain housing, employment, education and transportation. They are recruiting and coordinating support for our organization, our event, and the volunteers and event staff (the GROUNDCREW).
