Legacy Run passes through county

Residents of Brown and Adams County, especially those who are veterans or motorcycle aficionados, received a special treat on Sunday, Aug. 23, as the 2015 American Legion Legacy Run passed through both counties.

Over 500 motorcycles rolled past as part of the Legacy Run, which raises funds for the American Legion Legacy Scholarship Fund, which provides college scholarships to the children of U. S. service members killed on active duty since the 9/11 attacks. This was the ninth Legacy Run and in total, the nine runs have raised over $5 million.

A nice crowd gathered on the streets of Manchester to greet the bikers as they passed by, with each person in attendance able to wave an American flag in greeting, courtesy of the Manchester American Legion. The parade of bikes was escorted through town by the Manchester Police Department and greeted by a large American flag hanging over U.S. 52.

“I was so proud to see the outstanding turnout by the residents of Manchester and our surrounding Adams County communities for the Legacy Run,” said James Sandlin of Manchester, a Navy veteran himself. “I know our neighbors in Brown County were supportive of the riders before they came through Manchester on their way to Portsmouth. As a Navy veteran, it does my heart good to see the outpouring of love and support for all veterans.”

“I am sure that more than a few tears were shed in reflection by those in attendance, including yours truly as 500 motorcycles roared through town with a single purpose, to help families whose mother or father did not come home. The riders waved enthusiastically to all of us and we smiled and waved right back at these patriots. I know they were very appreciative of all of use being there to wish them well.”

The Legacy Run (Aug. 23-26) began in Indianapolis and was to end in Baltimore, MD.

The participants in the American Legion Legacy Run will travel the open roads and highways along some of the most scenic areas of the United States. Portions will include the Ohio River, historic towns and cities, farmlands, two-lane roads and interstate, and beautiful plains, hills and rivers of Indiana, Ohio, Pennsylvania, and Maryland.
