Once again, Dan's Ride was a great success in 2013!.  With attendance fees, generous donations, auction bids, and raffle ticket purchases; we raised over $7,000 for HOOAH!  Thanks to all of our great supporters, Dan's Ride has raised over $32,300 for veterans and their families in our first 4 years.

Although there are costs associated with hosting an event like this, not a single penny goes to any of the organizers, volunteers, or board members.  Our books are available for inspection on request.

Where does this money 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 a returning veterans tutoring program.

If you know of any company or individual that would be willing to step up and help by sponsoring Dan's Ride, please contact staff@dansride.org.



The SPC Dan G. Dolan Memorial Ride is an annual event to honor and remember the men and women of the U.S. Armed Forces who have given their lives, as well as those who have been wounded, in service to this great nation. This ride is to honor their heroism and their sacrifice. The proceeds from Dan's Ride this year will go to Helping Out Our American Heroes (HOOAH), our 501(c)3 non-profit organization, dedicated to military veterans and their families.

The ride begins at Golden Spike Harley-Davidson with a free breakfast, travels through some of Northern Utah's most scenic mountain passes and canyons, a ride-thru the George E Wahlen Veterans Home, and ends at the Weber County Fairgrounds for lunch, drawings, an auction, and live entertainment.  For event schedule, click here.

SPC Daniel G. Dolan, 19, died August 27, 2006 during combat operations in Baghdad, Iraq, when his M1126 Stryker Vehicle came in contact with enemy forces using an improvised explosive device and small arms fire. He was assigned to the 1st Battalion, 23rd Infantry Regiment, 3rd Brigade, 2nd Infantry Division (Stryker Brigade Combat Team), Fort Lewis, Washington. Dan grew up in Roy, Utah.   Many of you rode and stood for Dan with the Patriot Guard Riders at his service in 2006.  For more about Dan, go to Our Hero page.

In Memory of Dan Gyllenskog
Sept 21 1948 - May 12 2014

Dan Gyllenskog was a friend and a dedicated supporter of the Daniel G Dolan Memorial Ride.  He also played a major role in the annual Michael J Allred Ride for the Fallen. 

Dan spent a large part of his life in support of all veterans.  He attended countless missions with the Patriot Guard Riders for veteran funerals or welcome homes.

Dan will be greatly missed by all that had the honor to know him.  He served his country well while a member of the U.S. Marine Corps and for the remainder of his life. 

Semper Fi Marine!  Your watch is over, rest in peace.      Dan's obituary
