Ride for Semper Fi Fundraiser

By Media release

Armchair General received the following information in a media release. We are sharing it with our readers, who may be interested in learning more about the Ride for Semper Fi fundraising effort and the Injured Marine Semper Fi Fund.

The third annual Ride for Semper Fi will begin October 13, 2010, in Scottsdale, Ariz., and end three days and 430 miles later at SeaWorld in San Diego, Cal. Fifty bicycling enthusiasts, including some former Marines, will participate. This year’s goal is to raise $177,500 for the Injured Marine Semper Fi Fund.

The ride’s Website says, "Over the last two years we have been successful in raising more than $225 thousand for our friends and partners at the Injured Marine Semper Fi Fund. The Injured Marine Semper Fi Fund is a non-profit 501 C3 organization established to provide financial aid and quality of life solutions to injured Marines and Sailors who have been injured in battle or who suffer from life threatening illnesses.


"Since the inception of the fund the IMSFF has provided more than 18000 grants and 38 million dollars to those who have so bravely defended our liberties and freedoms."

Among this year’s sponsors of the Ride for Semper Fi is Pentagon Car Sales, the world’s largest BMW Military Sales and MINI Military Sales agency offering factory-direct savings to military personnel stationed overseas.


  1. We’re at it again this year. Backwith a vengance for the same great cause – The Ride for Smper Fi. 430 miles in 3 days to benefit injured Marines and Sailors of the US Armed Forces. Our goal this year is to raise $300K to donate to the Injured Marine Semper Fi Fund. Please help us get the word out and sponsor the strong men and women peddling in honor of the few and the proud.

    OohRah. Semper Fi.

      I’ve tried to touch base with Barbara Millelsen with
      about a property I own in P.V. that might be suitable for an overflow of
      your vets who are homeless, out of work, and or limited.
      If you have time I’d like to pass on some features of the building with you re: sutablility for male and female separate restroom facilities, etc. in 9100 sq.ft.
