This year has been very challenging for many organizations, including the Peacekeepers. The Covid Pandemic has caused many events to be canceled or postponed until next year. For many weeks and months, we have attempted to navigate through the unforeseen set of circumstances and make the best decisions for both you and the organizations we represent. We have had multiple meetings, consulted with medical professionals, talked at length to host sites and tried to formulate the best possible plan for this year.
With that in mind, we have postponed the annual ride to Sunday, August 23, 2020 with several notable changes. They include, but are not limited to the following:
We are taking every necessary precaution to still provide a safe and enjoyable afternoon. As you well know, this year has put an extra burden on many families attempting to assist their children in continuing education and has caused for the activation of hundreds of men and women in our armed forces. As a result, we felt compelled to do exhaust every measure and do everything possible to ride again for the Illinois Military Family Relief Fund and the scholarship fund for dependents of law enforcement and military personnel coordinated through the Illinois Sheriff's Association.
Your support, cooperation and understanding are appreciated.
Thanks in advance and we'll see you on the blacktop!
