With warmer weather beginning to make its way into Roanoke, more and more motorcyclists are looking to get back out on the road. The Roanoke Personal Injury Lawyers with Skolrood Law Firm add that there’s no better way to kick off the bike season than to ride in a charity event this weekend.

An article from WDBJ 7 News stated say the ride is being organized by Star City Riders to raise funds for a 17-month-old girl from Bedford, Virginia, who suffers from an extremely rare genetic condition, known as 1P36 Deletion Syndrome. The disease causes the child to suffer from low muscle tone, which will likely keep her confined to a wheelchair for the remainder of her life.

Registration for the event will begin at noon, near the Roanoke Civic Center, with the ride beginning at 1 p.m. The goal is to raise enough funds to build a wheelchair ramp and buy an air purifier for her home.

The team of attorneys with at Skolrood Law Firm explains that although riding motorcycles in a large group is safer than riding alone, there is still a chance of being involved in a Roanoke Motorcycle Accident. That’s why the firm would like to ask all those planning to participate in this weekend’s ride to stay safe by wearing protective gear.
