Southern Patriots Motorcycle Association 2024 Ride for Justice – Fundraiser to benefit Gadsden and Leon youth with classes for personal safety.

A two-community collaboration event between A Better Body and the Southern Patriots Motorcycle Association is in the planning. The event is sure to be successful while bringing community togetherness wrapped up in a fun-filled day of activities. 

A Better Body is aiming this year’s 2024 fundraiser to benefit the youth of Gadsden and Leon counties for classes that pertain to bully prevention, personal safety, life skills, and physical fitness. The non-profit organization hopes to have a variety of items available to raffle off that will contribute funds towards the cause.

A Better Body helps youth navigate through difficult situations such as obstacles and temptations they currently face or may face in future. The classes are taught to educate participants about the importance of respecting others, goal setting, how to learn their strengths, and respect themselves as well. The program does not only focus on mental wellness and life skills but also provides social and physical fitness environments that contribute to an embodiment of learning about self-care as a collective whole. Karate techniques are a big part of the training and classes are taught by Anne Radke who is a well-known Life Coach Master in Havana, Florida.

The Southern Patriots Motorcycle Association has planned a Ride for Justice event on May 11 in support of the fundraiser. The starting point of the ride will begin at Tallahassee Harley Davidson at 9 a.m. and end at Havana’s own Off the Rails Irish Pub by 2 p.m. There is a $20.00 fee to ride and a $10.00 fee for passengers.

For more information about how to donate or participate in the fundraiser please contact Anne Radke, the Executive Director of the program at (850) 566- 4544 or Brandon Keefer, the Fundraising Chairman at (850) 274-5932.

The mission of the program is to help residents of Gadsden and Leon counties who are at risk of poverty or below poverty levels and educate them to equip and empower stronger, safer, healthier, and more resilient communities.
