Photos from the 2022 Motorcycle Ride
The weather was spectacular for our Motorcycle Ride on June 5th as almost 200 participants took to the road for The Maurer Foundation’s 8th Annual Motorcycle Ride, our largest ride to date, raising over $15,000 in support of breast health education. Brian Busto, CEO, BMB Solutions and Event Sponsor stated, “The ride was a huge success. Helping to support The Maurer Foundation’s goals is very important to me and my firm, as we have all encountered a family member or a friend diagnosed with breast cancer. The Maurer Foundation is always trying to make a difference by raising funds and awareness through events like the Motorcycle Ride.”
We welcomed many new faces to this year’s event, including our founder, Dr. Virginia Maurer, who enthusiastically crossed off a bucket list item by joining us as a passenger on a bike! Escorted by the Suffolk County PD Highway Patrol and led by the Chosen Souls Motorcycle Club, bikers and their passengers set off for the 50-mile run from Overlook Beach in Oak Beach to the Riverhead Ciderhouse in Calverton where participants enjoyed lunch, raffles and camaraderie in a beautiful indoor/outdoor setting.
Our heartfelt thanks to each and every motorcycle club that came out in support, including Sworn Guns, Doomstrikers, Fire Riders, Victory Riders, Punishers, Founding Sons, AmVets Riders Post 88, and especially Chosen Souls MC. “Without the Chosen Souls, a ride of this magnitude would not be possible for us. From organizing the route to club outreach, they made this run safe and successful, and we are so grateful,” stated Susan Samaroo, Executive Director.
