Marine’s Ride Across Americahas important mission on Mother’s Day

May 6th, 2011

Tulsa, OK- "Marine Major Bill Conner is cycling across America, to raise funds for his fellow service members. His ride, Semper Fi Fund Ride Across America, will make an important stop this weekend to honor one of his heroes, his mom."

Maj Conner, an Oklahoma native, returned from a tour in Afghanistan in March and within a month
has set off on an 6 week journey across our nation to raise support for the Semper Fi Fund. He
felt it was important to raise funds and awareness for those that served and sacrificed so much for
our country. Having not seen his mom since returning from his recent deployment, Maj Conner is
also using this opportunity to stop and honor her and thank her for the support she has given him.
He will be making a surprise visit to her along his route on Mother's Day.

Maj Conner will finish his ride on May 30, Memorial Day in Ocean City, Delaware. Find out more
