Leg of Dragon motorcycle ride to benefit VA hospital
FRONT ROYAL – Unity Lodge and The Lost Tribe Motorcycle Riders Association are sponsoring the Last Ride through the Leg of the Dragon motorcycle ride on Saturday with proceeds benefiting the VA Martinsburg Hospital Christmas fund.
Larry Adams, founder and CEO of The Lost Tribe, had a vision to help veteran organizations.
“The Lost Tribe refers to the 10 lost tribes of Israel, which is used in Freemasonry as a symbolic gesture that society has lost their way and only though faith, hope, and charity we can find our path,” Adams said.
“The crescent and scimitar represent the Shriner’s Hospitals, which is our primary charity that we support though transporting patients, fundraising, and bringing in new members.”
The charity ride will support the VA Hospital in Martinsburg, West Virginia. The Lost Tribe, Widows Sons Brazen Pillars and the Vietnam MC group will use donations to purchase canteen coupons for hospital residents for Christmas.
“We’re supporting our disabled veterans by purchasing gift certificates for a group of permanent residents so they will have a better Christmas,” Adams said. “Our veterans have done a lot for us. It’s imperative we don’t forget their good deeds. It’s the least we can do.”
The Leg of the Dragon motorcycle ride begins in Front Royal and continues along Skyline Drive and through Fort Valley. The ride will last for roughly two hours.
Riders must be licensed and insured to participate in this event.
The morning kicks off with an 8:00 a.m. breakfast Saturday at the Masonic lodge in Front Royal followed by the Leg of the Dragon Ride. Riders will end up at the Virginia Beer Museum in Front Royal.
The Lost Tribe is a Motorcycle Riding Association or Riding Association 501 (c) (3) nonprofit that focuses on charity causes like helping the Shriners Hospitals and veteran’s organizations.
