2018 Warrior Ride

September 14 - 16, 2018

The Willis Foundation held its 13th annual Warrior Ride on September 14 – 16, 2018, in which more than 20 cyclists participated, riding over 200 miles in three days to raise funds for our 2018 Scholarship Recipient, Abigail Dickinson. Abigail (“Abby”) is the daughter of SSG Michael A. Dickinson, II, United States Army. Michael gave the ultimate sacrifice when he was killed in action on July 17, 2006, while on patrol in Ar Ramadi during his second tour in Iraq.

The Ride commenced on Friday, September 14, where the Riders departed Kalamazoo and headed to the west side of the state toward South Haven and down along the lakeshore of Lake Michigan to St. Joseph. On the second day, the Riders completed a Century Ride, a ride of at least 100 miles in 12 hours or less, and finished in Battle Creek. On the third day, Sunday, September 16, the Riders left Battle Creek after their customary stop at Fort Custer National Cemetery to pay their respects to Corporal Christopher Kelly Willis and two of our past Heroes and concluded their journey at the Kalamazoo Country Club, where the 2018 Scholarship Reception was held.
