BATON ROUGE, LA (WAFB) - Non-profit organization, Remembering Families of Down and Fallen Bikers, will host their second annual Motorcycle Awareness event to commemorate those bikers who have died and those who have survived wrecks.
The event will be held Saturday, April 29 at the Jewel Newman Community Center, located at 2013 Central Rd. in Baton Rouge. The event will be held from 5 to 7 p.m.
May is National Motorcycle Awareness Month, so the event will honor bikers who have been killed in wrecks, as well as those who survived. The event will include guest speakers and a balloon release. Many motorcycle clubs and independent bikers will be in attendance. In 2016, more than 150 people attended the event, and this year is expected to be even bigger.
Remembering Families of Down and Fallen Bikers was founded in December of 2015 by president, Karen Netter. The organization's mission is to raise awareness about motorcycle safety and to support the families of bikers who have been killed or injured in wrecks. Since its inception, the organization has helped families from as far as Florida and California and many places in between.
