The Run For The Wall pays tribute to those who have been captured or lost their lives while serving in America’s armed forces.

For 26 years, NRV employees and the UAW Local 2069 Veteran Committee have supported the Ride for Freedom event, creating special graphics to salute America’s military heroes.

The slogan is “We stand for the flag and kneel for the fallen.”
