Ride raises money for Fallen Riders Memorial Fund

LUBBOCK, TX (KCBD) - Motorcyclists hit the streets on Saturday to raise money for the families of fallen riders.

The organization's mission is to be a support system for the families who have lost loved ones in motorcycle accidents. All the money raised stays in Lubbock area and helps families in nine surrounding counties. 

"Unfortunately there have been families to help and anyone in Lubbock knows it happens all too often," said Chelsea Holloway, an organizer for the Fallen Rider's Memorial Fund.

She says most recently the group helped the families of Shae Reed and Jacob Rivera.

More than 100 riders joined the ranks to cruise around the South Plains.  

City of Lubbock Mayor Tom Martin made a special presentation before riders pulled out of the parking lot. On behalf of the City Council, Martin signed and presented a proclamation declaring the month of May Motorcycle Awareness Month for the Hub City.
