JOIN THE RUN Who is OVMA-HDE?
The Oregon Veterans Motorcycle Association (OVMA) High Desert Eagles (HDE) is a group of Veterans and active duty service members. Our mission is to raise funds that we can use to help fellow Veterans and first responders, their families and our community. All funds raised during this event will be used for that purpose.
In 2022 we raised over $38,000 and distributed it to several Veterans and Veterans programs including:
· The Central Oregon Veterans Village ( a group of homes to help transition homeless Veterans to homes and working)
· The Oregon Veterans homes in both Lebanon and The Dalles
· Several individual Veterans and families with various needs
· Gift cards to Veterans in need during the Thanksgiving and Christmas holidays
· The Honor Flight of Central Oregon and Southern Oregon
· Deschutes County Search and Rescue
· Oregon Honor Guard
· The Patriot Pin Up Girls (who support Veterans in so many ways)
· Veterans Memorials all around Oregon
· Along with many other Veterans needs
Veterans and active duty military personnel can become members of OVMA by attending a meeting and providing a DD-214 or active duty ID and paying dues. Dues for an active duty service member is free.
