On August 30, area motorcyclists will gather in a fundraising run to honor the memory of Adam Taylor with the proceeds going toward children and teens in the local area. Taylor was a resident of Acushnet who lost his life in November 2013 after he was involved in a car accident caused by a drunk driver on Route 140 in New Bedford.
Motorcyclists riding to benefit the Adam Taylor Memorial Fund, which sponsors scholarships, student financial aid services, awards, and Toys for Tots for children in the local community, will take to the roads on August 30. Tickets are $20 per person and must be purchased in advance from the Ponderosa Sportsman Club, The Rivers End. Rider check-in is 10:00 am ET; kickstands up at 11:30 am. The start of the run will be at The Ponderosa, 242 Robinson Rd, Acushnet and will conclude at The Madeira Feast Grounds, 50 Madeira Ave, New Bedford. The ride is organized to continue to share the love Adam poured into his family, friends, and community. He was always willing to help anyone, and his friends and family want to continue his tradition of selflessness to others.
All non-riders are invited to meet at the Madeira Feast Grounds at 1:30 pm where there will be food, raffles, a cash bar, and live music. Everyone is invited to come and celebrate the life of a 23-year old man who loved his community before he tragically lost his life.
