On June 18th, 2016. We Honor and Remember. Learn about the mission of the Illinois Motorcycle Freedom Run and the Middle East Conflicts Wall Memorial.
For over 10 years, these motorcycle riders have made a pledge to never forget the ultimate sacrifice warriors and their family’s have made in the name of freedom. See how the mission began, and how we continue to raise awareness and support of Gold Star families.
Located in Marseilles, Illinois, this monument was dedicated by the Illinois Motorcycle community in 2004 to honor those who sacrificed all in the name of freedom. The names of every service man and woman is listed on the wall, and is rededicated during the Freedom Run the third Saturday in June.
Purchase ILMFR dog tags, patches, t-shirts and other memorabilia as a way to help the Illinois Motorcycle Freedom Run continue their mission to help Gold Star families and the Middle East Conflicts Wall Memorial.
The Illinois Motorcycle Freedom Run is the primary sponsor of the Middle East Conflicts Wall Memorial in Marseilles.
Through the funds raised by the annual motorcycle run, private individuals and corporate donations, we are able to continue our promise to Gold Star Families that we will never forget. Help us honor the men and women of the armed forces, who gave all for our country.
The ILMFR uses funds to etch the names into the Wall, improvements and maintenance, as well as funding veterans organizations.
We accept all kinds of donations, from volunteers to monthly recurring amounts. You can mail donations, drop off at the donation box at the Middle East Conflicts Wall Memorial, or use a card with PayPal.
A $10 donation grants you an annual membership to the ILMFR. $15 will get you into the annual run to the wall on the 3rd Saturday in June, plus a dog-tag with the name of a fallen warrior.
Come visit the Middle East Conflicts Wall Memorial along the banks of the Illinois River.
