Beartooth Harley-Davidson/Buell is teaming with the American Legion post in Billings, Mont., for a ride and concert May 19 to benefit the Wounded Warrior Project.

The Freedom Ride and Freedom Jam begins at 1 p.m. May 19 — Armed Forces Day — at Beartooth H-D. Riders will head out to the Harley dealership in Red Lodge for refreshments, then ride back and stop for a short time of reflection before parading back into town to the American Legion post for a concert and dinner.

Collette Haun, Beartooth’s marketing and events director, is helping organize the event and has a son serving in the U.S. Army. She said he has two friends who’ve died and numerous others who’ve been injured. “When you meet these guys and you see what they’ve given and what they’ve given up, how it affects families, if there’s anything we can do to help, we’re going to step up,” she told the Billings Gazette.

The benefit is open to the public. Tickets cost $30 per rider and $10 per passenger. For those wishing to just attend the concert, tickets are $18 in advance and $20 at the door.
