Motorcycle groups often get a bad rap for being rowdy brutes. This weekend, see the softer side of cyclists from across the Midwest. The Indianapolis Motor Speedway, west of Indianapolis downtown, will host the Midwest Break Out Ride and Community Day for charity on Saturday, April 30. More than 50 motorcycle clubs will flock to Indianapolis from Ohio, Michigan, Illinois, Kentucky, Tennessee, Missouri and of course Indiana. All the proceeds from this Indianapolis event will benefit the Christamore House, serving families in Haughville (a near Westside neighborhood).
The Midwest Break Out Ride and Community Day was founded in 2006 by Big Tay, founder of Down2Ride Motorcycle Club and Krome, founder of Made Men Motorcycle Club, teamed up to encourage fellow “true” riders to put their money where their mouth was. The men set out to prove that while motorcyclists might be tough they all have heart. For the past five years this Indianapolis charity event has netted thousands of dollars for a variety of deserving Indianapolis not for profit organizations.
Participating motorcycle clubs include Street Ryders MC, 4 Horsemen MC, Incredibles MC, 317 Ryders MC, KY Hypnotic MC, Lexington Barrons MC, Down2Ride MC, Ground Breakers MC, Made Men MCC, Heavy Hitters$ MC, Toros MC (Columbus, Ohio), Riders 4 Life MC and many many more. The Midwest Break Out Ride is a sight to behold as the streets surrounding the Indianapolis Motor Speedway are filled to the brim with bikes and bikers.
This Indianapolis event is all for a good cause: to raise funds for the Christamore House, located in Haughville, Indiana. Founded in 1905 by two Butler University students, Christamore House is on a mission to promote the general welfare of Haughville residents. This near west side community is located on the banks of the White River, just west of Indiana University Purdue University Indiana.
The programs at Christamore House focus on personal and family developments of Haugville neighbors. Activities and services include preschool, adolescent recreation, adult education, senior activities, counseling, emergency clothing, food and infant supplies, dental and well child clinics and more.
An agency of the United Way, the Christamore House is a full service organization promoting better lives for residents of a down and out neighborhood. Among their core values Christamore House is “committed to (1) supporting family and individual growth, (2) promoting responsibility, self-sufficiency and empowerment and (3) building a community focused climate where we work and help each other.”
