American Legion Rider’s Come out in Support of MORE Foundation’s Veterans’ Transportation Program
On Saturday March 7, the American Legion Post 34 organized its second annual Ride ‘N Raise to ensure veterans in Maricopa County would have continued access to medical transportation. The event, which welcomed all vehicle types into the annual “poker run”, helps to support MORE Foundation’s Veterans Transportation Assistance Program (V-TAP). The event saw a great turnout and culminated in a fun-filled afternoon featuring live music and charity auctions at the Post headquarters in Cave Creek.
The American Legion Post recently presented MORE Foundation with the proceeds of the fundraiser, which will fund over 50 medical transport rides for veterans who need assistance. These rides ensure our veterans can Keep Life in Motion by fulfilling the critical role that reliable medical transportation plays in maintaining health, mobility and independence.
Since its inception in 2015, V-TAP, in partnership with Quality Transportation Services of Arizona, has provided over 1,400 reliable and compassionate medical rides to the veterans of Maricopa County. The current COVID-19 pandemic and the associated shelter in place and social distancing guidelines, creates new challenges for veterans to travel to and from needed medical appointments. Now more than ever, V-TAP plays a vital role in the health and safety of veterans by providing timely, professional and private rides to medical providers across the county.
