03NR10 - Share Your Good News!

The Motorcycle Riders Foundation (MRF) received a call yesterday from one of the largest newspapers in the country looking for some specific information about bikers and their good deeds. The reporter was struck by the reports he saw about the motorcyclists that showed up in court on behalf of Elizabeth Smart, and wants to do a story about the good things that bikers do for their neighbors and communities.

The MRF knows that there are many stories out there, but we are looking for specifics. We do not need details about charity rides or toy runs or typical annual events, etc. The reporter that contacted us has already found plenty of examples of those types of events by simply doing an Internet search and speaking with a few local organizations and clubs.

What we are seeking is information regarding situations where bikers were able to get involved and provide a UNIQUE service. One example the reporter gave was that he heard bikers were helping search for debris after the shuttle explosion. He has not been able to confirm that, however; so if anyone out there can provide any specifics about that particular story, please get in touch with us. Another example might be bikers helping search for someone who is lost, or helping a community clean up after a natural disaster such as a tornado.

We need to forward this information to the reporter by 6 p.m. EST on Thursday, March 27. To send in your story, simply hit "Reply" and give us as many details as possible. Be sure to include your name, organization's name (if applicable), e-mail address, and phone number in case we have any questions or need further details. Then the MRF will pass the information along to the reporter that contacted us. In addition, we will most likely highlight some of the stories we receive in the MRF Reports.

Let's take advantage of this opportunity to promote the good things bikers do!
