Great Rewards for Great Warriors:
The primary mission of the Corporal Christopher Kelly Willis Foundation is the funding of college scholarships for the benefit of Michigan children who have lost their parent (or whose parent has been permanently disabled) in a combat zone. It is our belief that these families have also made the ultimate sacrifice.

2014 Warrior Ride (September 11 - 14, 2014)

This year will mark the Ninth Annual Warrior Ride of the Willis Foundation. The Riders will ride 200+ miles to the Fort Custer National Cemetery where Corporal Willis is buried and then continue to Bronson Park in Kalamazoo where the riders will stop briefly to be joined by our ‘Last Leg’ riders. All the riders will then travel to the Kalamazoo Country Club where a reception for the riders, families, guests, and service people from the base will be held.

This year’s scholarship recipients have yet to be announced.
