Midway Route Coordinator – Newsletter – May 2020

Greetings RFTW Family!

Everything is moving forward for our reunion over the 4th of July weekend and I hope to see as many of you there as possible.  It should be a fantastic event.  Find out more info on RFTW.US website under the Midway Hub. (2020 tour of Tennessee reunion).

May 13th is quickly approaching  and I know we all wish that we would be in Ontario together and ready to kick off our mission.  As we know, our current situation has not allowed this to happen.  However, nothing will stop our mission in our hearts.  We will be having a “Virtual Run” on the website.  There will be postings of what would be happening on each day of the scheduled Run.  Gunny Gregory will be posting live feeds with his thoughts. I encourage all of you to check out our website every day May 13 – May 26.    

Now being offered,  FREE Shipping on purchases over $50 and the coveted RFTW 2020 Pins are 25% off! Get your 2020 RFTW merchandise and represent our mission.  Print a MIA/POW/KIA bio from website, under Midway Hub (“Riding for those who can’t” bio link) and ride for them.  Take a picture of you riding with it and post on our RFTW Facebook page.  Work is being done to allow these pictures to be shared on the website.  I will pass on more information when that is available.   This last week, my grandson, Zachery, made his first motorcycle ride with me.  Of course, he was “riding for those who can’t” and he will “never forget”! I was a proud Pop!

Our Southern Route Coordinator, Bob “Captain America” Nelson, has invited us to join them on his “Quest 2020”.  To participate, do the following during May 13 – May 26:

  • Create a BIO (or 2) of your own, representing those We Will Never Forget; you can also download and print one from the link to the list of BIOs on the website (TBA) or
  • Put on your favorite Run For The Wall 2020 shirt
  • Ride to towns within your state beginning with R, T, F & W
  • Take a picture with your BIO, in front of something which shows the name of the town.
  • Please share your pictures on our picture portal (TBA)
  • All four do not all have to be done in the same day
  • This is open to ALL Routes, Riders and Passengers, FNGs and Seasoned Riders
  • When you have finished, send me an email to with the dates and towns that you visited.
  • In turn, I will email you your Certification of Completion.
  • If that seems too easy, you can challenge the Super HOPE Quest and add the H, O, P & E towns.  The same “rules” apply.
  • See Bob’s Southern Route RC newsletter for more info.

Please check our Midway Leadership contact link on the website.  If you are committed to returning to a leadership position for 2021, please make sure your name is on the list.  If it is not, please contact me and I will add you.  I am keeping this list current.  Please remember that we are in need of a State Coordinator for Oklahoma.  Please let me know if you would be interested in this position.

Have I told you lately?……………………..I love my RFTW family!

Is it July yet?

Honor * Hope * Healing
