Thunder off the Rail Gunnar’s Run

July 28, 2018


This is a ride for a local family that lost their son, Gunnar Shirvin. He was a young veteran that struggled with PTSD and tragically took his own life 1/18/18. In addition to supporting the Shirvin family, we are also trying to raise awareness for all families who have lost children due to accident or suicide. Of the families I have spoken with, they have indicated that they often feel ostracized from their friends because their friends are afraid to say something that might offend them, so they say nothing. It is our hope for this ride that people realize that parents who have had a child taken from them are no different and they just want to be able to not only keep their lost child in their heart, but also remember the good and happy times by talking about them. This ride will leave a little later than most because upon return to the legion we are planning a evening with a band to entertain and help us raise more donations.
