The George O. Spain Jr. Memorial Healing Run is the Northwest Iowa American Legion Riders (ALR) main fundraiser in the summer months. We figure we want to find ways to help veterans and their families in our area, so we may as well have fun doing it! In a nutshell, we hold a poker-style motorcycle run the third Saturday of every July. Fifteen bucks gets you in, all vehicles are welcome. We have food and an auction afterwards, and live music! It’s a good time, trust me.
