6th Annual Bill Grace Teddy Bear Motorcycle Ride
On Saturday July 28th the local chapter of the Red Knights Firefighters Motorcycle club in conjunction with the Dixie Star Riders in Conyers will be sponsoring the 6th annual Bill Grace Teddy Bear Motorcycle ride. The purpose of the ride is to raise money to buy Teddy Bears. These small stuffed animals are distributed to area Police, Fire and EMS agencies to give to children that been involved in a stressful situation such as an injury or illness. Many times this is just enough of a distraction to calm a child and allow public safety officials to properly care for the child. Last years event raised enough funds to purchase close to 6000 Teddy bears. The Griffin ride will begin at GTO’s parking lot on the north expressway and will be Lead by Members of chapter 11 of the Red Knights Motorcycle Club. Registration is at 8:30 Am and leaves for Monticello at 9:45. This ride will meet with two other rides in Monticello and then the entire group will ride to Conyers where lunch and door prizes will be provided. Cost of the ride is a rider determined donation to the effort. For more information you ca contact Bobby Norton at 770-833-3900 (Conyers) or Joe White at 678-859-3718 (Griffin).
