Events & Charities

Our Motto and our Goal is:

"Vets Helping Vets"

You may have seen that on this website a few times.  

You will also see it on all of our vests.  That is to remind us every day that we should do all we can to help other Veterans, and that includes you.  Every year the Combat Veterans Motorcycle Association® hosts and supports many Charity & Fundraising motorcycle Runs, Rides and Events to raise money.  We donate our time and the funds we raise to Veteran Support Groups, VA Hospitals, Homeless Veteran Shelters, VA Homes, Support Dogs, and Veteran Outreach groups, and many more.

Chapter 24-2 Hosts two major Fundraisers each year.
