In honor of Chief Vaccaro, his friends and fellow teammates have organized the Lance Vaccaro Memorial Ride.

The cross-country ride begins in Virginia Beach, Virginia June 17, 2010 with a stop-over in Seward, Alaska.

Once in Alaska, the crew will participate in the Independence Day Festival, and run in the annual Mount Marathon Race.

Their return trip will take them back through Canada, finishing in Richmond, Virginia July 17, 2010.

The grueling daily schedule has them riding an average of 320 miles per day for the month long 9,978 mile excursion.
