We give a Long Distance Rider Award, your name is engraved on a plaque that in the hallway of the home, see below how the LD rider mileage works.
This is a benefit for the home and a scholarship fund that has been established in the name of "Ron Melton" we have given one scholarship thus far in Ron's name....Ron rode in support of the home each years before his death.
There will be a lunch provided at the home beginning at about 11 AM, come and visit the campus of this Children's home, see the kids and see how your donations are used.

Long distance rider award, here how it works, you can ride in, count your miles, if you pick up a donation from someone, count that leg as your milage as well, heck pick up two donations... so if are in Atlanta and want to ride up a pick up John Doe's donation in Chicago and then ride over to St. Louis and get Sue Doe's donation, just count your mileage.
