RALLY ALL: MOTORCYCLES, SIDE BY SIDES & JEEPS

DISPLAY OF SUPPORT
After check in, all riders are invited to participate in a display of support for our Cochise County Law Enforcement and pride for our nation by riding down Fry Blvd. displaying the Thin Blue Line flag and/or the American Flag. Once riders have completed this section of the tour, motorcycles will start their on-road journey around Cochise County, stopping at designated sponsor locations along the way to have some fun. Each stop will be different! Side by Sides and Jeeps will continue to their off-road adventure, stopping at the designated sponsor locations along the way to have some fun. Each stop will be different!

AFTER THE RIDE
In the afternoon, our 8th Annual Charity Ride will have door prizes (all riders are eligible to win!), a raffle of some big ticket items, a firearms raffle (shotgun/scope combo (TBA) and a handgun (TBA), food vendors, and DJ entertainment. Invite the whole family!





OUR 2020 CHARITIES


REAL WISHES FOUNDATION is a local charity that focuses on helping those in the community in need. They help Habitat for Humanity Playhouse, Relay for Life, Halloween Fall Festival, West End Clean Up, Senior Angel Tree, and Coats for Kids. They have helped over a thousand people and families in our community through the years. The assistance is given in various forms such as volunteers helping clean up a home or yard or paying for utility bills, roofs, plumbing, medical costs, and vehicle repairs. These vital services are designed to help people get back on their feet in a time of need.


BENSON SHOP WITH A COP provides opportunities for youth to experience positive interactions with members of law enforcement while Christmas shopping for themselves and family members in a safe and secure environment. Its mission is to help underprivileged children come together with local Law Enforcement in an inclusive, non-threatening environment. This in turn encourages open and honest communication with Law Enforcement Officers, removes any fear the youths may have when interacting with officers, and helps educate them about the role officers play in our community.

The children selected to participate in the program go through an extensive referral and screening process. This includes referrals form school officials, church leaders, and individual officers. Applications are accepted from parents/guardians and other family and friends.


VELO VETS SIERRA VISTA supports the needs of U.S. Military Veterans in the Sierra Vista area. Velo Vets are cyclists, volunteers, and supporters who come together to enrich the lives of Military Veterans by sharing the physical and mental benefits of cycling, having fun, and building a stronger support network.
Disabled riders use recumbent trikes, hand-cycles, tandems, and bikes. All cycling equipment is custom engineered to leverage their strengths to help them rise above extraordinary circumstances, improve mobility, and see a brighter future with more support and camaraderie.
