Second Annual Benefit Ride
In Memory of Kasey E. Frye
Saturday, March 28, 2009
Greenville to Winterville, NC
On the day after a tornado touched down in the area, the clouds parted to allow the sun to shine on a group of enthusiastic motorcycle riders in Greenville, NC. This was the second annual memorial ride to remember Kasey Frye that was organized by his good friend, Kacey Wilson. Kasey Frye did not let his hemophilia limit his activities; unfortunately, he was killed in a motorcycle accident in 2008. The proceeds from this event were designated for Hemophilia of North Carolina and for the America Red Cross. Participants were able to donate their blood at the blood mobile bus that was parked at the end of the ride. There was also the opportunity to win raffle prizes and door prizes and to eat a hearty lunch after completing the ride.
The motorcycles had gathered early in the morning at Ron Ayers Motorsports and then, along with a police escort, traveled around Greenville to finally reach J&E Harley Davidson. Joining with friends and extended family, there were many participants from the community who enjoyed riding motorcycles who joined in the event. HNC extends its thanks to Kacey Wilson, his family, and his friends who volunteered their time and energy for this cause that raised awareness for the bleeding disorders community. The success of the Kasey Frye Memorial Benefit Ride indicates that it could be repeated for many years to come.
