Dealers in six states to host Mission 22 benefit rides to Loretta Lynn’s

HURRICANE MILLS, TN – More than 20 Dealers from six states will host rides next month in support of Loretta Lynn’s Ride for Mission 22, an organization that provides treatment programs for military veterans suffering from post-traumatic stress disorder and traumatic brain injury. The organization also raises awareness about military veteran suicides.

The charity rides will be held during the Tennessee Motorcycles & Music Revival, a four-day festival to be held Sept. 28 through Oct. 1 at Loretta Lynn’s Ranch in Hurricane Mills.

Dealers from Arkansas, Illinois, Indiana, Kentucky, Missouri and Tennessee are participating. The rides will begin at the participating dealerships and end at the festival. Hosting rides, according to the organizers, are:

  • Abernathy’s Harley-Davidson, Union City, TN
  • America’s Motorsports, Dickson, TN
  • America’s Motorsports, Madison, TN
  • America’s Motorsports, Nashville, TN

“In addition to the motorcycle people camping at the Ranch, and anyone coming in on their own, we have 21 motorcycle Dealers hosting their own motorcycle rides that will all converge at the Ranch,” said Loretta Lynn in a press release issued by festival organizers. “We want to give them a real nice show with a special military tribute and recognize that many of these young men and women who serve our country often come home with turmoil and grief that leads to suicide.”

“This is the first time you will see so many dealerships working together, coming together all in effort to support our veterans,” said Carrie Repp of R&R Promotions, a partner organization for the festival.

Each ride is limited to 50 people and requires pre-registration and a $50 fee per person. All proceeds will go to Mission 22, according to the organizers. More information is at
