Due to Hurricane Florence and the unknown weather conditions it may bring to the Upstate of South Carolina, the Seventh Annual Roger Rice Memorial Ride, scheduled for Sunday, has been postponed until Sunday, Sept. 23.
The ride will recognizes fallen officers across the country. There will be food, raffles, an auction and live music provided by the Steele Justice Band.
The participation fee is $15 for motorcycle or vehicle, and check-in time for bikes and vehicles participating in the ride starts at noon, with bikes and vehicles out at 2 p.m.
The ride will begin and end at Destination Power Sports, located at 23165 Hwy. 76E, Clinton.
All proceeds go to the Deputy Roger Rice Ride-On Fund, which was created as a not-for-profit hardship fund to provide financial assistance to distressed law enforcement officers and their families when there is a genuine need. The fund has helped local law enforcement families during medical emergencies, long-term illnesses, fires, deaths and much more. The fund is run solely through volunteers and donations.
Those who are not participating in the ride are welcome to enjoy the day’s events at Destination Power Sports. The event is family-friendly.
