motorcycle ride

TUPELO, Mississippi. Bikers ride in order to raise money to help fund Operation First Response. More than 300 riders and their motorcycles departed Tupelo’s BancorpSouth Arena, headed for  Southern Thunder Harley in Southaven Saturday morning.

The  purpose of this charity event is to raise money to help fund Operation First Response, which covers all five branches of the military for emergency financial relief. According to bikers who participated on the event,  it’s the least they could to do show their support to soldiers.

Many of the bikers are former military and have returned from Afghanistan, Iraq and even Vietnam. They say events like this are worth every dollar raised.

When the charity motorcycle ride was originally put together, the intent was to do it for one year. However, organizers say as long as there is a need, they’ll continue to ride and raise money to help out the soldiers, rain or shine.

This is only one of the many charitable acts bikers in Mississippi  like to do annually because it shows they care for those who are in need of extra assistance. The ride is one of three scheduled for this year.
