Run For The Wall Cruises Into Corydon on a Mission

Run For The Wall (RFTW) was founded in 1989 by Vietnam Veterans James Gregory and Bill Evans. The two traveled across America on motorcycles promoting their message through local radio, TV, and newspapers. Their purpose was to provide facts regarding the thousands of men and women still unaccounted for from all wars. They sought to honor the memory of those killed in action and support military personnel. As wars wage on, the need to spread awareness still exists today and the Run For The Wall tradition continues every May.

On Tuesday, May 19, Run For The Wall will be passing through Corydon. The riders will be escorted through Downtown Corydon from I-64 exit 105, by the Harrison County Reserve Officers. Expected arrival time is 6 p.m. (EDT). Residents and visitors are encouraged to show their support by lining the sidewalks of Capital Avenue to greet the riders as they parade through town.
