|Description||The motto "Soldiers Helping Soldiers" is a testimony to the ride's beginnings when a few soldiers of the 155 Brigade Combat Team of Mississippi, while still deployed in Iraq, put together the logistics for the first ever Dixie Thunder Run in 2006. |
In the beginning the Dixie Thunder Run was a motorcycle ride to benefit deployed soldier's families of Mississippi. As it spread by word of mouth, soldiers and supporters have joined over the past Six years to make the Dixie Thunder Run the largest organized motorcycle ride in the state of Mississippi.
Dixie Thunder presently has two rides per year, Memorial Day and Labor Day, in addition to the rides we hold several other events during the year, which helps to support Operation First Response, a Non-profit organization that provides financial Emergency relief to all five branches of the Military Nationwide.
Operation First Response is a Non- Profit organization dedicated to the Men and Women who defend our Country each and every day. They are on a National Level, and specialize in emergency financial assistance to military families. They cover all branches of the Military.
Since 2006 Dixie Thunder has presented over $110,000 to:
Injured 155th Soldiers, Mississippi, Alabama, & Tennessee Military Emergency Relief, Operation First Response, The Better Life Foundation.
