Since the SGT Jan Argonish Ride began in 2008, veterans and charities have benefited from generous contributions to honor the life of the Lackawanna County native.
Janā??s Ride was created by Talia Walsh, after her fiance, Army SGT Jan Argonish, was killed in an ambush in Afghanistan in August 27, 2007 while serving in the Pennsylvania National Guard.
In addition to attempts to bolster the spirits of six brave young men injured during military service, funds raised during the first four years of Janā??s Ride have been used to provide individual assistance to these men in regaining independence. The 5th annual motorcycle ride and event took place Sept. 9. For additional photos, see the Sept. 12 print edition of The Abington Journal.
