United States Navy Chief’s Team

Ride Across Maryland (RAM) 10th Anniversary

Results Not Excuses

Retired Chief Petty Officer Kirk Towner is Team Captain of a RAM team of active and retired Chief Petty Officers, 25 plus have agreed to participate with a goal of 125 plus.

Request the CPOA consider a donation to this great cause in honor of one of our own Chief Petty Officer Dabet Valez. Fort Meade CPOA and Patuxent River CPOA have each donated $500.00 to the team. Suitland CPOA will donate $25.00 for every member that participates in the ride.

Team membership is open to family, friends, and the public for those interested in supporting the team for this great cause. You can ride with on the ride or in your heart by joining the team virtually.

To join the team you do not need to ride, you can drive and meet us in Ocean City or be a member virtually and at heart. If you are able to make a donation or join the team, it would be much appreciated. Every little bit helps in the end for the donation that is provided to the Susan G. Komen for the Cure.

Details of the ride and lodging information can be found on the website. Francis Scott Key is the host and is a great place to stay.
