Riding cross-country for the cause, not the applause
So many of us want to help others, but can never figure out how or what can be done. So a local motorcycle group, Gallant Warriors, came up with a new idea. Founder and president Reese Anderson wants to bring awareness of how much help disabled children and their families require. This is when the group came up with the idea to ride across America to gather pledges and donations. Gallant Warriors will leave Darlington April 16 and return May 1. They will be traveling to San Francisco, Calif., and making a stop at the Golden Gate Bridge for a photograph with their banner. Anderson says that any business or individual who wishes to donate can do so by pledging per mile or just make a donation. He also states that 100 percent of money raised goes to the five organizations chosen, St. Jude Children’s Hospital, Shriners Children’s Hospital, MUSC, McLeod Children’s Hospital and local children. The round trip is approximately 5,545 miles, possibly more. Basically, if someone wanted to donate 1 cent per mile it would only be $55.45 and so forth. Although all of the group’s members have an important role in making this event possible, some will not be able to make the ride due to their work schedules. Others will be flying out on April 21, returning April 26, to show support. The group has set a goal of $30,000, but will be happy with any amount they receive. You can donate until June 1. Gallant Warriors would like to present the checks at their two-year anniversary party on June 5. You can make donations through PayPal, Venmo, Cash App, or see a Gallant Warrior patched member.
