Motorcyclists will escort traveling Vietnam Memorial Wall

The Student Veterans Association at D'Youville College and Hogs and Heroes are organizing a motorcycle escort for the traveling Vietnam Memorial Wall, which lists the names of service members killed in that war.

The escort will accompany the exhibit from Darien Lake State Park in Darien Center to Buffalo's Front Park on April 26, said Justin P. Roehner, alumni adviser to the Student Veterans Association.

Registration for motorcyclists begins at 11 a.m. at the park and the escort starts at 2 p.m. It is expected to arrive at 3 p.m. in Front Park.

In addition, the association will also conduct a fundraiser, "Laps for Limbs," at 8:30 a.m. April 30 in Front Park. Participants will run laps to raise money for war veterans and children who are amputees. Roehner said runners are in need of individuals and corporate sponsors for the donations.

For information on sponsoring runners, go to lapsforlimbs.org or email Roehnj27@dyc.edu.
