Ride remembers soldier, awards scholarships in memory
(NEWSCHANNEL 3) - For eight years the Corporal Christopher Kelly Willis Foundation has hosted the Warrior Ride. The route travels through West Michigan to Fort Custer National Cemetery where Willis is buried. The Plainwell native served in the U.S. Army for seven years, with multiple tours of duty in Afghanistan.
The ride not only honors his life, but the lives of so many others who've died in combat, by raising money to give scholarships to the children those soldiers leave behind.
Chris Tarkowski discussed the foundation and the Warrior Ride with Newschannel 3's Jessica Harthorn.
