Macon Charity Riders Say Goodbye to the Community


Macon Charity Riders held their last benefit ride on July 30th, 2011. At our regular monthly meeting held August 1st, 2011, we voted to dissolve MCR. We would like to take this opportunity to thank all past members, public and businesses that have supported us through the last five years.

We were established on January 4th, 1997 and dissolved Aug. 1st, 2011 . Thanks to all of you, Macon Charity Riders was able to hold 48 benefit rides for people raising over $85,000 for them. In addition to that, we raised and donated $3,000 to the center for Courageous Kids, over $3,000 to Macon Helps Cancer Program, $750 to the Jonathan Hudson Memorial Scholarship, $1,400 to St. Judes, $900 Back Pack Program for the schools, and $750 to the Matt Cliburn Memorial Scholarship.

We have also assisted the Lions Club and Santa’s Helpers. Again, we would like to say goodbye and thanks to all of you.
