SEAL Family Legacy is a locally based non-profit of volunteers raising awareness for men and women who died for our country and have left children behind, with all profits gained from their events going straight to those Gold Star families.

This weekend, specifically Saturday, July 16th, SEAL Family Legacy and friends are going on their first Legacy Ride, and they're inviting anybody and everybody to join in.

The event starts at 9:45am with a presentation of colors by local Vietnam Veterans at the Waterfront Convention Center in Bettendorf.

At 11:00am, the ride, which is open to any and all vehicles capable of maintaining the minimum speed limit on highways and interstates, will depart.

So far, over 100 participants have RSVP'd to the event, with many more expected to show the day of the event - including some U.S. Navy SEALs.

From Waterfront Convention Center, the group will ride up to the Dubuque area, through Maquoketa, Goose Lake, LeClaire, and end at The Quarry in Bettendorf around 4pm.

Police will give escorts at various points throughout the ride, and overpasses and streets along the route are expected to be lined with first responders, townspeople, and other groups displaying American Flags.

Food and drink will be available at various stops along the ride route from various vendors.

All are welcome to the opening ceremonies at 9:45am, even if you're not headed out for the ride.
