As a rule each Dream Rider Chapter does not have a specific region to work in, but when we come across a need that may be closer to a specific chapter, we dont just hand off information to that chapter and walk away. We try to share in the joy of helping a child in need and strengthening our relationships.

This is where Jess fell, Chapter A & H worked together to fill the need that he had. Then came together to deliver and share smiles and love with the family.

20 Years Of Biking For Children

Celebrating Together

The first weekend of June is when the annual Bridgette Raine’s Scholarship ride is held in Coffeeville MS. This year, 2018, happen to be the 20th year of our organization. So many children have taken hold of the Dream Rider’s hearts and allowed us to show them and their family love.

Bridgette Raines Ride

Join us in the Annual Bridgette Raines Memorial Scholarship Ride

The first Sunday in June is a special day for all Dream Riders, it is set aside to honor Bridgette Raines. Bridgette was a very special young lady to the men and women who started Dream Riders. She was in an accident that involved a drunken driver, she became a quadriplegic because of this accident. She is why Dream Riders was founded. No one is ever prepared for a life changing accident, including the Raines family, that’s when Dream Riders stepped up and formed this organization to help this family and others like it.

Bridgette Raines Memorial Scholarship Ride

 

Bridgette passed away in September of 2003, Dream riders prepare this annual event to provide a scholarship for a deserving child. This event not only is a time of fellowship for all Dream Riders but a reminder of why we do what we do, and to always have a helping hand ready.

Come out and join us for food and fellowship and also the bike ride!!

Thank you for all you do !!

 

Chapter A & H helping Ronald McDonald house

Chapter A & H helping Ronald McDonald house

In November, Chapter A done their annual Ronald McDonald house supply run. They invited Chapter H to assist and be part of the action.

Chapter A & H shopping for supplies.

Once we finished shopping we carried the supplies straight to the Ronald McDonald house where they would be used and shared among the residents.

Ronald McDonald House Charities of Mississippi

It was explained to us that each family has 30 days @ the home and once the 30 days are up they have to leave to make room for the next family. They can also be put back on rotation as often as need be.

Lil Max – the cutest Dream Rider Ever

We were able to take a tour of the facilities. Each room was set up like a motel room, there was a community wash room, with detergent and all other needs provided. Also, each family had their on kitchen area with a stove, refrigerator, cabinets and sink. Then their is a community refrigerator that would store goodies from local churches and community groups.

There was also a dinning room and living rooms for the families to use. There are no TV’s in the individual rooms so that the families are encouraged to spend time together.

It was a true eye opener to think about these families that need this support and how important Ronald McDonald is to families. It hit home thinking about how much we take for granite, when we have healthy kids.

We all look forward to next supply run, knowing we are lending a helping hand to those in need.

Thank you for all you do!
