The 4th Annual Cpl. Kevin Clarke Memorial Motorcycle Ride to benefit The Heart of A Marine Foundation, is Sunday September 12th. Kevin, who grew up in Tinley Park, was at the end of his second deployment, and it was just one month after his 21st birthday, when he was killed in a firefight, by small arms fire in western Al-Anbar province Iraq, February 19th, 2005. The ride is to honor Kevin and all those who made the ultimate sacrifice. Registration starts at 7:00AM, at the Tinley Park American Legion Post 615. Kickstands up at 10:30AM sharp. The police escorted ride will go to Abraham Lincoln National Cemetery for a ceremony, then return to Post 615 for food, entertainment, raffles and a live auction. The riders will return shortly after the conclusion of the Fine Arts Festival Parade. Residents are encouraged to remain on Oak Park Avenue and welcome back the caravan of motorcycles and cars. Flags will be handed out to those in attendance. Registration fees are $15 for riders, $10 for passengers. Cars are gladly welcomed and encouraged to join in the ride. There will be an optional pancake breakfast from 7-10AM hosted by the American Legion Riders for a $5.00 fee.
