you for all your generous support!!!
6th annual Dan's Ride (2015) is going to be better than ever! We will be
starting and ending the ride at Weber County Fairgrounds to
eliminate the extra tear down and setup required with two
different venues. We are planning an improved
breakfast selection, compliments of BD Catering and as
always, a great lunch prepared on our return. And of
course another great ride in the scenic northern Utah
canyons. Tell your friends and pass
the word to all the riders you associate with.
you for supporting and being a part of the continued success
of Dan's Ride! Although Dan's Ride 2014's attendance
was lower than previous years, the overall funds raised were
better than average. With attendance fees, generous
donations, auction bids, and raffle ticket purchases; we
$9,319 for HOOAH! Thanks to all of our great supporters,
Dan's Ride has raised over $41,600 for veterans and their
families in our first 5 years.
Although there are some minimal costs associated with hosting an event
like this, all of the organizers,
staff, and board members are strictly volunteers. Our books are available
for inspection on request.
does the money raised go? About 35% of this money has
gone to projects, such as sending neck coolers and Christmas
packages to our troops, financial assistance to some of our
local wounded warriors, and our entire first year funds
raised went to Mikes Guardian Eagle Foundation for their use
on various veterans projects. The remaining 65% has
been accumulating to setup a self-generating scholarship
fund for veterans.
This year, HOOAH has finalized an agreement with
Weber State University and have initiated the Dan G
Dolan Veterans Memorial Scholarship. This
program will grant financial assistance to
qualifying veterans that have exhausted their GI
Bill or other government assistance and enable them
to complete their degree.
If you know of
any company or individual that would be willing to step up
