2/15/2013 - SEYMOUR JOHNSON AIR FORCE BASE, N.C. -- A group of motorcyclists on and off base came together to show support and make a difference for an Airman and his family, Feb. 8.
The motorcyclists were asked to donate money for a 4th Fighter Wing family who lost the majority of their belongings in a house fire in January.
"We didn't set a price on how much it is to ride, just asked they donated what they could," said Tech. Sgt. Derek Mitchell, 4th Component Maintenance Squadron NCO in charge of safety. "It was good to see all the motorcyclists come together."
The group raised approximately $800 to donate to the family.
For more information on how to donate to the family, contact Tech. Sgt. Anwond Boykin at 722-5749 or Senior Master Sgt. Joseph Braden at 722-5729.
