Ruben Rollin’ Milwaukee

For his final stop on his cross-country motorcycle ride, former NFL guard Ruben Brown rolled into Milwaukee, WI, on August 11 for the Harley-Davidson Museum’s Bike Night. Following a warm greeting from bike enthusiasts, families, and Salvation Army staff, Ruben signed autographs and toured the museum with fans.  His visit to Milwaukee concludes a two month, 7,000 mile motorcycle ride which he began in June.

Along with raising awareness of The Salvation Army, the 11th annual Ruben Brown Motorcycle Run helped raise funds to support The Salvation Army children’s programs. As a one-time recipient of these programs, Ruben feels he greatly benefited from the experience and he is committed to helping other children experience the same. From coast to coast, Ruben visited nine locations in eight states!
