Events

Attend Events. Get Involved.

Chapters of the The Joshua Chamberlain Society host various fundraising events throughout the year. In addition, we also periodically host events sponsored by generous donors. These events are an opportunity for you to get involved, give, and meet our heroes.  Check this page periodically for upcoming events!

Are you biking across the country? Are you running a marathon this year? Are you hosting a fundraiser in your area? If you are looking to fund-raise within your community to give back to our nation’s veterans, and their families, then the Joshua Chamberlain Society is the perfect organization for you. If you would like to support a current fundraiser, all of our active campaigns are listed below. If you are interested in starting a new campaign, please contact us at info@chamberlainsociety.org with all of the details.

3rd Annual Don Forth Trans Am Bike Race

St. Louis

Beginning on June 2, 2019, Don will once again undertake the challenge to bicycle unsupported from Astoria, Oregon to Yorktown, Virginia in the Trans Am Bike Race. The Trans Am Bike Race is a self-supported, ultra-distance bicycling race along the Trans America Trail – a 4,300 mile route that runs from the Pacific coast to the Atlantic coast crossing the Cascades, Rockies, and Appalachian mountain ranges; and is one of most grueling races in the world with less than 50% of registered riders able to complete it every year. In his first two attempts, Don raised nearly $15,000 in support of JCS.  Don’s progress can be followed on his blog and real time GPS. His goal is to go the distance this year.

4th Annual JCS Bike for Heroes

St. Louis

Come join us and tour the flat farmlands of the Mississippi valley heading south out of Columbia, Illinois with views of the bluffs as we support our adopted Heroes.

The JCS Bike for Heroes ride offers four different routes in distances of 10 miles, 25 miles, 50 miles, or 80 miles.  There will be several rest stops with snacks, drinks, and facilities available for your convenience. On the 25 and 50 mile routes, you will travel the flat farmlands and enjoy views of the Missouri and Illinois river bluffs.

The 80-mile route extends to Prairie Du Rocher, Illinois where you will ride alongside bluffs and pass Fort De Chartres. Built in 1753, this site marks the location of the last of four successive French forts built during the colonization of the Illinois Country.
