Riders with Heart Helping Kids in Need

metamora herald riders with heart

I attended a charitable event the other day, and it was a fun gathering with many different activities. I was taking pictures and talking with some people when I heard the roar of a motorcycle muffler. I naturally assumed they group of people rolling up on their bikes were family or friends of the people having the event. Then it seemed as if folks were excited, and I heard a woman say " that is Rider's with Heart, get a camera and get a picture of Ava with them".  I rushed to where they parked, I had no clue what was happening.

Who is Rider's with Heart? I had never heard of them before. Their name and also coming to Action for Ava, I had a feeling they were there to donate money or perform motorcycle stunts. I am glad I was right. They donated $500.00 to Ava's Army of Angel's. She and her family were very surprised, and I was taken aback by the heartfelt contributions to this little girls benefit. The Riders with Heart do not tell the person/organization that they have been selected in advance.

The Riders show up and give the money they have donated to them through the three different runs and a chili cook off and silent auction they have annually.
