"We Ride So They Fly" Motorcycle Event Raises $45,000 For Honor Flight New England
MANCHESTER, NH - Motorcylcle enthusiasts gathered together at Manchester Harley Davidson for the fifth annual “We Ride So They Fly” event Saturday.
The event raises funds for Honor Flight New England which allows veterans to be flown to Washington, DC, and visit the war monuments and memorials that recognize those who served.
The motorcycle riders listened to a special presentation to the wife of Henry Naruszewicz, an Army veteran from Salem who served in the Second World War, and the ride was dedicated to this year.
Naruszewicz was a participant in Honor Flight New England and became enthusiastic after flying to Washington to tell his story to many people. Naruszewicz recently passed away at the age of 106 years old.
Dorothy Flanagan, Naruszewicz’s daughter was presented one of his original uniforms in a special case to preserve the memory of his service in the Army.
The ride left Manchester Harley Davidson with an escort from New Hampshire State Police, Manchester Police, and Londonderry Police.
After several miles, the ride concluded at the Deerhead Sportsmen Club in Hooksett where the participants continued with activities to raise additional funds.
Organizers say $45,000 was raised and there are donations still coming in.
