KIA Sedonas Lend Support on Cross-Country Motorcycle Ride Honoring Veterans

Stops in Wentzville, Jefferson Barracks scheduled on the ride from California to Vietnam Memorial

The 2015 KIA Sedona will be alongside almost 1,000 motorcyclists on their cross-country journey to the Vietnam Memorial starting May 13. The Run For The Wall, which recognizes all veterans who have served, is a 10-day cross-country motorcycle journey dedicated to promote healing among veterans and their families and friends, as well as an accounting of all Prisoners of War (POW) and those Missing in Action (MIA).

Three routes will be taken by the motorcyclists, and the northernmost route has a scheduled stop in Wentzville, MO. Supporters of motorcycles, veterans and KIAs from Jim Butler KIA in Chesterfield Valley can head west down Interstate 64 to see the final stop for May 18.

On May 19, the route will make a stop Jefferson Barracks VA Hospital at 9:15 a.m. at 1 Jefferson Barracks Dr., St. Louis, MO 63125.

The 2015 Sedona minivan provide transportation for those who would otherwise be unable to make the journey for the 2,600-mile ride. The 2015 Sedonas will carry needed supplies, wreaths for the Memorials as well as items given by communities and schoolchildren to be left at The Wall. KIA will also sponsor three fuel stops on the three routes. For more information on Ride For The Wall, visit their website for itineraries and scheduled stops.

“KIA is grateful to the brave men and women who have elected to serve our country, and the Run For The Wall is an annual event that honors their sacrifice,” Tim Chaney, vice president of marketing communications for KIA Motors America, said. “By supplying Kia Sedona minivans as support vehicles on all three routes and financial support for the ride, we hope to further the organization’s mission of healing.”

The trip begins in Ontario, CA and ends at the Vietnam Memorial in Washington, D.C. Along the way, riders will visit veterans’ hospitals, schools and memorials. Communities will come together to greet the riders with hot meals and logistical support.
