It is with great pride and honor we announce that
“A Salute To Our Heroes Foundation”
2022 honorees will be the American Legion Riders
from Post # 57, Elgin, IL.


American Legion Riders chapters are well known for their charitable work, which has raised hundreds of thousands of dollars to support local children’s hospitals, schools, Veterans homes, severely wounded service members as well as award scholarships. Since 2006, Riders nationwide have participated in The American Legion Legacy Run to raise money for the Legacy Scholarship Fund, established to provide scholarships to children of U.S. military personnel killed since Sept. 11, 2001.

Currently, over 110,000 American Legion Riders meet in over 2,000 chapters in every domestic department and in at least three foreign countries. Riders in Iowa have formed an honor guard called The Five Star Freedom Riders, and Riders in Mulvane, Kansas, founded the Patriot Guard to protect the sanctity of military funerals from protesters. Riders in all states have escorted military units returning home from combat tours overseas, conducted massive cross-country fundraising events for wounded warriors from all services, and have raised millions of dollars for countless local, state, and national charities. Many Riders, supported by their departments, conduct annual statewide Legacy Runs in direct support of American Legion scholarship programs of Operation Comfort Warriors (OCW), supporting our wounded service members across the nation.
