RIDERS 4 RIDERS NATIONAL CHAPTER Our Moto: “Down but not Forgotten” Rider 4 Riders, formed in 2010, is a “Non-Profi t Organization” of volunteers dedicated to assist motorcycle riders injured or families of those lost due to a motorcycle accident at no fault of their own. First and foremost, our goal is to educate the public and promote motorcycle awareness throughout the community. Applicants are not required to be a member of this organization to receive assistance. Many injured riders and/or their families require immediate assistance meeting fi nancial obligations and personal needs. This may include household expenses as well as cleaning, laundry, meals, food, transportation to/from doctor/hospital appointments, babysitting, cooking, medical equipment, spiritual needs, or something as simple as a phone call or personal visits. Although fund-raising events may be planned to aid someone (which our rider community generously does so often), it takes weeks to organize these events properly. This is where our Riders 4 Riders volunteers are willing to step up and off er immediate assistance. Anyone that Riders 4 Riders provides assistance to will be encouraged, once they are able, to “Pay It Forward” and join us in our endeavors to help others in need. All are invited to come to a monthly meeting currently held Tri-monthly on the fi rst Sunday of each month at Boondocks Bar & Grill, 10210 Airport Boulevard and County Line Bar, 26901 Hwy 613 MS & The Main Event 6485 US-90, Theodore, AL at 11:00 a.m. ALL members are welcome to attend any Activity and Event Committee meetings as well as the General Meetings. You may email any questions or suggestions to r4r@r4rmobile.org. Our web site, www.r4rmobile.org has updated meeting information, pictures of some events, and information on upcoming events scheduled.
