Cincinnati Motorcyclists Support Charity Events for Cancer So Put Your Prejudice Down and Come

Lady Riders Against Cancer
Cincinnati Motorcyclists , in particular this past Saturday, the Lady Riders  against Cancer  put on their 2nd annual poker run against cancer. These ladies have all been touched by some form or fashion of cancer. Several are two time cancer survivors. Some have lost their husbands to cancer or multiple family members.

The only requirement for membership is you are a lady and you have a motorcycle endorsement. But anyone can come out and support their events . Riders and non riders, men, women and children. All their events are non alcoholic. Even though the day started off overcast there were smiles and positive attitudes all around.

They were on Cincinnati Biker Life several weeks age where I interviewed them as guests to talk about their organization and fundraiser.  In addition to supporting efforts to eradicate cancer, they also volunteer at the Shriners burn institute.


American Federation of Bikers 24th annual bike Blessing Sunday May 6th at American Legion Post 199 Harrison Ohio . This group is renowned for it's charitable contributions especially for children's causes.

The A.F.R, as they  like to call it, is a 501-c3 publicly funded charitable organization compiled of all types of motorcyclists, dedicated to helping needy, neglected, abused and handicapped children. They have no paid members or officers. Established in 1982, the A.F.R has helped thousands of children in the Tri-State Area.
They have provided medical grants to families with children in need of life-saving surgery or treatment. Annually, they adopt several families and provide them with Christmas dinner and gifts, sometimes Santa Claus even stops by! These families are chosen through local parishes and would normally not be financially able to have their own Christmas.
On a group basis, the A.F.R sponsors activities like Easter egg hunts and trips to the Zoo. They also do repairs at private and county funded centers for less fortunate children. In 1989, they started the A.F.R scholarship fund. High school students who are college bound may apply for this financial assistance through their school counselors.

They  also have another event scheduled for June 16th . It is their 31st annual poker run . this is one of the largest events in the midwest. It will be held at American Legion Post 199, Campbell Road, Harrison Ohio 45030 .

There are literally hundreds of events going on this year. Check in here or at Cincinnati Biker Life radio to see what's upcoming.


 Also if you would like to have photographs of your event I can provide a photographer free of charge and the photos will be up loaded on my facebook page Cincinnati Accident Attorney . Tag them for contributions

Richard Danied Strong Rest In Peace May 9th, 2008

We will remember Richard Daniel Strong next Saturday at 3 PM. Just nod your head in silent prayer that day. He was needlessly killed due to the neglect of Ohio Department of Transportation and Kokosing on I 75 Southbound mile marker 17 in a construction zone. I have ordered the road side cross but so far odot has not responded to our request to place one well of the road. If fact they no longer even have the mile marker 17 sign where his motorcycle crash and death occured,  they have one at 16.8. We will never forget him, nor will his family that grieves to this day and will never be the same .

You can reach me at 621-2345 if you need a hand . I am always happy to talk with my motorcycling friends
