I was fortunate to participate in the motorcycle ride and purchase a t-shirt. It was beautiful to see the community come together for complete strangers. It makes me proud to live in the area that I do. Some say that Southwest Virginia is the poorer part of the state, but it’s usually the ones who don’t have much to give that give their all. Everyone that showed up that day had problems of their own going on in their lives. However, for one day, they were able to set that aside and do something so special for someone else. There was a great turn out and the donations are still pouring in! The total is now over $14,000, with every cent from the benefit going to the families of the victims!
