Dan Barton of Elgin, Ill., was a friend to everyone he met; a 26 year-old man with a charming personality, a beautiful smile and a big heart – working to following in the footsteps of his father to become a firefighter when he was diagnosed with leukemia. The Rally is in honor of Dan’s great love for motorcycles and fast cars and pays tribute to his courageous battle against leukemia. The Dan Barton Memorial Chapter is now based in Oregon, Ill.
