Recently, we had the incredible opportunity to partner with the 317 MC Ryders to host a Support Ride to Plainfield Correctional Facility, and we are thrilled to share the highlights of our first fundraising event.
On Saturday, June 24th, over 40 motorcycle riders came together to support our cause. The riders hit the road in support of making an impact on the lives of incarcerated fathers and their children. The day started with a pre-ride meet-up at the Fay Biccard Glick Center. Laughter, genuine connections, and shared stories commenced as riders, families, and the YouYesYou! team came together. It was a beautiful moment—an authentic celebration of community and togetherness.
Thanks to the overwhelming support we received, this ride generated proceeds that will drive our work forward. These funds will help us provide resources, support, and guidance to incarcerated fathers, empowering them to rebuild and nurture their relationships with their children. By investing in these fathers, we’re investing in stronger families and resilient communities.
We want to express our deepest gratitude and appreciation to the incredible members of the 317 MC Ryders, and their president, Jimmie McMillian. Your support and dedication to our cause have touched our hearts. Together, we’re rewriting the narrative of fatherhood, one ride at a time.
