|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 three rides per year, Memorial Day and Labor Day, which helps to support “Operation First Response”, a Non Profit Organization that provides financial relief to all five branches of the Military Nation wide.
Our third is “Ride for a Cause” sponsored by The Better Life Foundation / 3 Doors Down.
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.
The Better Life Foundation is a Non-Profit organization founded in 2003 and was named after 3 Doors Down’s most successful CD "The Better Life." Their mission is to make a positive change in the lives of children in need of food, shelter and medical assistance, and to enhance the lives of children and young adults with special needs.
Since 2006 Dixie Thunder has presented over $ 110,000 to:
Injured Soldiers of the 155th BDE MSARNG,
