The Garrard County Fairgrounds is the perfect spot to host this amazing event to support the Boulder Crest Retreat for Veteran Wellness. According to the Logs n’ Hogs Facebook page, this event is organized by Tommy and Gwen Mitchell from the TV show Log Heads and is set to benefit the ongoing operations at Boulder Crest Retreat for Veteran Wellness. The mission of Boulder Crest Retreat is to create a free, first class rural retreat for outpatient and transitioning veterans where they can come with their families for short-duration healing retreats designed to enhance their progress towards rehabilitation and reintegration back into the military or civilian life. The retreat opened its doors on September 6th, 2013 to serve approximately 1000 warriors and family members each year.
John Hart, owner of Start Skydiving, and founder of Team Fastrax, said “We are honored to be performing at such an exciting and patriotic event. Members of Team Fastrax have served the United States of America as part of the Armed Forces, many in combat, so we understand the importance of retreats like Boulder Crest, and the support they can provide to our veterans and their families."
Registration for the ride will be held from 10am to 11:30am on Saturday the 10th. Advanced tickets are available at Wildcat Harley, Rocky Top Log Furniture and Rocky Top Shell. The bike fee is $25 (includes T-shirt), and the fairgrounds admission will be $10 (children 5 & under free). The fairgrounds are located at 7786 Lexington Rd., Lancaster, KY, 40444.
