This summer marked Harleys Against Heroin’s second annual fundraising ride. Founded by Nikki and Keith Patton, Harleys Against Heroin is an organized motorcycle ride with the proceeds going toward battling the heroin epidemic.

Several Sojourner staff members attended the Harleys Against Heroin event–a few were even on Harleys! They had a blast and said a great time was had by all.

The 2015 Harleys Against Heroin event involved two separate rides–the first one on July 25 and the second one on August 23. These two rides gained a following of 700 bikes and raised a total of $41,000 for the fight against heroin! That’s life-changing. The grand total was split equally among four substance abuse treatment agencies, each one receiving a check for $10,250. Sojourner was fortunate enough to be one of these agencies. We could not be more appreciative to receive this donation and look forward to putting it toward healing our clients and shutting out heroin.

Thank you Harleys Against Heroin, thank you Nikki and Keith Patton, and thank you to everyone who came out to support the event! Your selfless generosity is truly making the world a better place.
