Rolling Thunder HH7


Rolling Thunder®, Inc. is known across the country as the organization that plans the “Ride For Freedom” demonstration ride in Washington D.C. on the Sunday of Memorial Day Weekend.

In 2019, Rolling Thunder®, Inc. National decided that in 2020, the “Ride For Freedom” will go Nationwide, and have Chapters plan rides in their state or region. Rolling Thunder®, Inc. of North Carolina will hold North Carolina’s “Ride For Freedom” in Fayetteville, NC on Sunday, May 24, 2020.

This will be the 33rd annual gathering where motorcyclists will come from every part of North Carolina to make a statement that it is unacceptable that there are over 82,000 American Service Members, both men & women, that are still listed as Prisoner of War or Missing in Action (POW-MIA). Not only are we riding for these Service Members, but we ride so that the current men and women serving our nation will know that we will not let them be forgotten if they should become a POW-MIA in future conflicts.

The funds raised by Rolling Thunder®, Inc. will be used for veterans, active-duty military and their families in need of help. No officers of Rolling Thunder®, Inc. receive compensation; we all donate our time. Rolling Thunder®, Inc. spends hundreds of thousands of dollars each year in financial aid, food, clothing and other essentials to veterans, homeless veterans and veterans' families in need, women's crisis centers and toys for children. So by becoming a sponsor for the “Ride For Freedom” on May 24, 2020, you will be helping us to help our Veterans here in North Carolina.

Information about the weekend, as well as the Ride For Freedom on Sunday, will be updated as soon as details are made final.


The major function of Rolling Thunder®, Inc. is to publicize the POW-MIA issue: To educate the public that many American Prisoners of War were left behind after all previous wars and to help correct the past and to protect the future Veterans from being left behind should they become Prisoners Of War-Missing In Action. We are committed to helping American Veterans from all wars. Rolling Thunder®, Inc. is a non-profit organization and everyone donates his or her time because they believe in the POW/MIA Issue that we are working on.
