About the Ride

About the Ride

On August 6, 2011, a CH-47 Chinook helicopter was tragically shot down by enemy fire in Afghanistan resulting in the worst loss of life in a single incident during the Afghanistan campaign. 30 active duty military, and 1 military working dog, were killed in action on this day leaving shocked and broken families in their wake.

To celebrate these incredible lives and support families of fallen heroes, the 3rd Annual Extortion 17 Memorial Ride will take place on August 2, 2014 in Virginia Beach, VA. Since the rides inception in 2012, this event has raised over $335,000 for the families of Extortion 17 (2012) and key charity partners (2013). Over 2,000 motorcycle riders and passengers have participated in this annual event since 2012.

All proceeds from the 2014 Extortion 17 Memorial Ride will go to The 31Heroes Project and The Travis Manion Foundation. The 31Heroes Project was established to honor the 30 Americans and a working dog killed in action on August 6, 2011. Today, 31Heroes serves to impact the lives of our nation’s heroes and their families, while remembering the fallen, through athletic endeavors and competitive fundraising events. The Travis Manion Foundation’s mission is to assist veterans and fallen heroes, and to inspire a spirit of service throughout the nation. The Extortion 17 Memorial Ride’s mission is to honor and commemorate the heroes lost on August 6, 2011 through an annual memorial motorcycle ride, thereby ensuring that all families of the fallen are cared for after the loss of their loved one.
