Team Leland

Join our team and help us support the cause! Thank you for supporting the American Heart Association! Your contribution is greatly appreciated. We are continuing to ride in honor of James Leland Gardner, Sr (May 5th, 1944-May 14th, 2021), who suffered from Pulmonary Heat Disease. 

Leland was born in Martinsville, VA and served in the US Army. He married the love of his life, Kathy, and devoted his life serving the Lord, his family, and work, which he instilled in his family to carry on. Through his life he built a legacy of faith, love, and integrity, which was imparted onto his children and grandchildren, showing them to love God first, take care of your family, and work hard. Leland and his memorable personality will never be forgotten. 

We may all have been touched by heart disease through family and friends. In his honor and memory we ride and strive to make a difference!  

Thank you all for your generous support!
