[ARCHIVED] Run For The Wall Returns to Las Cruces Thursday Night

Motorcycles and their riders on Roadrunner Parkway

The 30th annual Run For The Wall began Wednesday, May 15th in Ontario, California and will again stop in Las Cruces from Thursday night through early Friday morning.

Hundreds of motorcycles are expected to arrive in Las Cruces shortly after 6:30 p.m. Thursday. The caravan of motorcycles will come into Las Cruces on eastbound Interstate 10. The motorcycles will stop at Barnett Harley Davidson, 2600 Lakeside Drive, where all riders and members of the caravan will have a complimentary dinner provided for them.

Early Friday, the Run For The Wall caravan will travel to American Legion Post 10, 1185 E. Madrid Ave., where breakfast will be served from 5:50 a.m. to 7:30 a.m. From American Legion Post 10, the motorcycles will go to Veterans Memorial Park, on Roadrunner Parkway, where a wreath-laying ceremony will be conducted.

The caravan is expected to leave Las Cruces about 8:40 a.m. Friday and travel to Odessa.

Run For The Wall is a cross-country motorcycle ride to promote healing among veterans, their families, and friends. It is also a call for an accounting of all prisoners of war and U.S. military personnel listed as missing in action (POW/MIA). The motorcycle ride honors the memory of Americans killed in action during all wars and supports military personnel throughout the world.

Run For The Wall will end May 24 in Arlington, Virginia. But motorcycle riders will remain there to participate in Memorial Day ceremonies, in Washington, D.C. on May 27.
