The Ben Kopp Memorial Ride would like to offer our sincere thanks for your support of our 2013 event.
Our two day event was a huge success and gave us the means to give $12,000 to our local veterans and
The recipients of our donation this year will be the Minnesota Military Family Foundation and
Beyond The Yellow Ribbon Networks of Dakota and Rice counties.
The Ben Kopp Memorial Ride is committed to showing our local veterans they are supported by the
communities in which they live. We are further committed to supporting the challenges they face by
providing financial assistance to specific needs and care associated with transitioning from deployments
and/or from active duty to civilian live.
The results of this care will generate a veteran better equipped to reintegrating as a positive contributing
community member, which in turn benefits the community.
On behalf of our veterans who have made the ultimate sacrifice, those who have served and those who
continue to serve our great country, we are grateful you chose to join us in giving back to those who have
given so unselfishly to us.
We would like to further thank the wonderful staff at Bogart’s Place, Beyond The Yellow Ribbon
Networks and Ron Kalstabakken for their support and contributions that helped make 2013 our best
We look forward to 2014 and thank you in advance for your continued support.
