Community Service Opportunity: Annual Camp Ho Mita Koda/Blue Knight Motorcycle Run @ Lake County FOP
Aug 27 @ 9:00 am – 2:00 pm

The annual Blue Knights Ohio XV Chapter Run benefitting Camp Ho Mita Koda in Newbury will be held Sunday, August 27. Our unit has helped with this event for several years and the Blue Knights would like us there again this year.

DETAILS

  • Location: Lake County FOB Hall on the corner of Colburn and Auburn Roads in Concord
  • Drop off: 0900 Parents are not required to stay
  • Pick up: 1500 at Camp Ho Mita Koda
  • Attire: Young Marines MUST be in uniform and squared away for this event. If not, they will be sent home.

PARENTS: DO NOT LEAVE YOUR YOUNG MARINE AT THE FOP HALL UNTIL YOU CHECK IN WITH A UNIT STAFF MEMBER.

The Blue Knights® International Law Enforcement Motorcycle Club is a non-profit fraternal organization consisting of active and retired law enforcement officers who enjoy riding motorcycles. The Blue Knights Ohio XV Chapter holds this run every year as a fundraiser for Camp Ho Mita Koda, a camp for children with diabetes. All proceeds from the run benefit the camp. Our unit has been helping the Blue Knights with this event for several years and they appreciate our involvement.

The Young Marines will help direct the motorcycles where to park, will present morning colors before the ride begins, help set up and serve lunch, and help with the clean up. The Blue Knights support our unit in many ways so it’s important we show them our appreciation by having a good showing at this event.

RSVP: The Blue Knights have asked us how many Young Marines will be attending. Therefore, everyone is required to email Mrs. Cimino at webmaster@glcyoungmarines.org by August 24 and let her know if they are attending or not.
