    The Run for the Wall® Board of Directors, and the Route Coordinators would like to clear up and clarify for new riders and the public, rumors regarding Run for the Wall® and Rolling Thunder.

    1. Run for the Wall® and Rolling Thunder ARE NOT the same organization, and are not affiliated. They never have been affiliated, nor have they ever been the same thing or organization.

    2. Rolling Thunder is/was the 2-mile demonstration parade in Washington, DC the Sunday of Memorial Weekend in May. (Every year many Run for the Wall Riders have participated in the Rolling Thunder parade because we were there at the same time.)

    3. Run for the Wall® began in 1989, and now 30-years later is the largest and longest organized cross-country motorcycle ride and event of its kind in the world, and operates Three Routes: Central, Midway, and Southern Routes. All routes start in Ontario, California and travel to Washington, DC, consisting of a 10-day journey that crosses America’s heartland from Coast-to-Coast raising awareness for POW/MIAs, supporting our current and former military, and provides a healing environment for veterans, veteran families, and supporters. Everyone is welcome to join one of our three routes, veteran, non-veteran, and/or supporter. Riders are welcome to join any one of our three routes for 1-day, or any combination up to the full 10-day ride. You must, however, join at one of our overnight stops. You can’t join mid-day.

    4. The Rolling Thunder organization has announced that 2019 will be the last year they will have their 2-mile demonstration parade in Washington, DC, the Sunday of Memorial Weekend. This has ZERO impact on Run for the Wall® operations.

    5. Run for the Wall® will operate all of its routes in 2019… AND BEYOND (2019, 2020, 2021, 2022, and so on). We will always ride to Washington, DC… Every Year. We we will always lay our Mission Complete Plaque at the apex of the Vietnam Memorial Wall. We will still go to Arlington National Cemetery. We will still wash The Wall. We will still gather on the steps of the Lincoln Memorial for a group photo. We will always welcome anyone that wants to ride with us and join us on any of our three routes, especially our younger veterans. We will always Ride for Those Who Can’t. Join us. Continue The Mission, and learn more at: http://www.RFTW.us

    We would prefer that when using AmazonSmile, that people use it every time they shop at Amazon, and select Run for the Wall as your supporting 501(c)(3).  And we are the one out of Hamilton, OH.  That is where our treasurer lives.

    It is permitted. You will just be put in a trailer platoon, with others hauling trailers.
