American Legion Riders Legacy Run Stops in Russell

Legion Riders 3Several American Legion Riders stopped in Russell on Friday for their Legacy Run.

The purpose of the Legacy Run is to raise funds for the higher education of children whose parents were killed, or have been determined to be 50 percent or more disabled, in service of their country.

Last year, the Kansas Legion Riders raised more than $27,000 for children of veterans.

The Legion Riders Legacy Run was started after 9/11, nationwide, but this group was the Kansas chapter only.

The riders traveled from Interstate 70 north on Fossil Street, turned east on Wichita Avenue and stopped at the Veterans Memorial next to the Russell Golf Course.

The riders laid a wreath at the Veterans Memorial.

The American Legion is celebrating its 100th anniversary this year.
