Illinois Motorcycle Freedom Run

On June 20th, 2015. We Honor and Remember. Learn about the mission of the Illinois Motorcycle Freedom Run and the Middle East Conflicts Wall Memorial.

What is the ILMFR?

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.

The Mission
The Middle East Conflicts Wall Memorial

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.

MAKE DONATION

The Illinois Motorcycle Freedom Run is the primary sponsor of the Middle East Conflicts Wall Memorial in Marseilles.

What is our goal

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.
