About Gold Star Riders
Gold Star Riders is a charity organization that directly supports the mission of Legacies Alive and actively participates in community events that support Gold Star families and help keep the legacies of our fallen heroes alive.
The Gold Star Riders organization plays an integral part in carrying out the Legacies Alive mission, which is to to strengthen and support the Gold Star families of our nation’s fallen heroes and to bring national awareness to the life and character of all service members who paid the ultimate sacrifice.
Gold Star Riders was formed in March of 2022 as a sub-chapter of Legacies Alive by Legacies Alive volunteers, members of the American Legion Riders, and Patriot Guard Riders. The founding members of Gold Star Riders are a group of individuals who share a common interest in the motorcycle community as well as a strong commitment to our nation’s Gold Star Families.
Currently, there are 29 Gold Star Riders members, 5 of whom are Gold Star Family members. Each member is committed to supporting Legacies Alive. Members volunteer at events held by Legacies Alive and provide an escort for Gold Star family members at each event.
