We are 100% behind our vets and we are throughout the state of Louisiana. We are looking for people who want to join in and be a part, but not looking to just up our numbers. So if you’d like to join in and help us stand behind our vets and especially if you are a vet, let us know because we’d love for you to be a part.

On October 18, 2014 some friends initially came together after a Breast Cancer Awareness Ride looking to start a group that is near and dear to all of our hearts, our Veterans and active military. After we met a few more times online, we decided on the name Southern Riders Group aka SRG.

Our motto: Louisianans Taking Care of Our Vets and Families of the Fallen through Faith, Understanding, and Support
Our mission: To help our Vets and active soldiers first and foremost, and emergency personnel through poker runs, cookouts, and other types fund raisers.

We will also participate in assisting with events; such as, cancers & developmental disabilities.

We understand that we can’t help everybody but if we can help just one person or family with a difficult time in their lives then we can say we have reached our goal. We are not in it for the fame. We are committed to help those who live in the great state of Louisiana.
