Brian Griswold, a man who underwent a tragic loss in February due to a home fire, decided to show his appreciation for the Cape Cod and Islands Chapter of the American Red Cross of Massachusetts by hosting a fundraising event this past July. As a member of the Cape Cod Bikers, Brian wished to raise money by hosting a cruise from Sagamore Park to Parkers Shipwreck Tavern in Eastham where participants would receive a discounted lunch with the opportunity to donate money to the Red Cross.
Despite a bleak forecast for Sunday, July 27th, bikers rode behind a Red Cross Emergency Response Vehicle in procession starting at 9:00am and managed to raise a considerable donation for the Cape Cod and Islands Chapter! The Red Cross is always grateful to any who donate either time or money so that we can continue to pursue our mission of providing compassionate care to those who need it most.
