Ride the Peak Benefit Ride
The Scarlet Headers had the chance to give back to the community today by volunteering for Urban Peak. Urban Peak is a homeless shelter for teens and offers housing, meals, education, employment training, laundry services and showers to kids ages 15 through 24. Their goal is to "meet youth where they are and to provide them with the assistance and support they need to become self-sufficient or obtain the necessary services they need to exit a life on the streets."
With the help of Erico Motorsports we made breakfast and served food for 40 kids in need. Coming together for the greater good is always a special feeling, but the best part was how many of us realized this is something we want to keep doing. Not just once in a blue moon, but numerous times a year. Taking the time to give back and step outside of your own world is the best way to ground yourself.
After we served breakfast, 30+ riders met us at the shelter and rode to Lookout Mountain (the Peak) with us. We couldn't have asked for better weather, views or company today.
A big thank you to Erico Motorsports for donating breakfast items and helping us in the kitchen, all of the Scarlet Headers who attended the event, the riders who donated and rode with us, and to Urban Peak for your hospitality.
I look forward to more volunteer opportunities this year and hope to see you then!
