What can I say?Posted: Updated:
Three days after the Choppers for Choppers ride I am still in disbelief at how many of you showed up. That has to be one of the classiest and coolest turnouts my biker friends have ever displayed. In case you missed it, we held a memorial ride for our Newschopper 3 friends Scott Bowerbank and Jim Cox and channel 15's Rick Krolak and Craig Smith. Money raised went STRAIGHT to the family of Phoenix police officer George Cortez who was tragically killed in the line of duty that same horrible day.
I thought we would have a nice turnout but was absolutely blown away when bikes started coming in from as far away as Yuma, Tucson and Flagstaff. It made me so proud to be part of such a group of giving, caring people. My co-workers still come up to me amazed at the turnout. My reply to them? "Those are the bikers of Arizona, they do this sort of thing year round." From the bottom of my heart, Thank You!
