Bikers Are Hitting The Road For Suicide Awareness in Rockford
At a time when we are all struggling to get through this pandemic, this event couldn't come at a better moment.
On Saturday hundreds of motorcycles will be meeting at Cherry Valley Fire District 2 between 10:00-10:30 with their kickstands up at 10:45. The ride is part of the 7th annual Tommy Corral Memorial Foundation on their 7th Annual Ride to Fight Suicide. The foundation is in memory of Tomas (Tommy) Corral, III, who took his life by suicide on 8/18/14 as a result of depression at the age of 19.
The Tommy Corral Memorial Foundation, a non-profit organization, seeks to expand understanding, empathy, and provide supportive services, in our community, for mental illness and suicide. To achieve these goals, the Tommy Corral Memorial Foundation pledges to support local organizations, families of suicide and those affected by mental illness, however possible, while working to improve education, concerning these serious topics, in our schools and throughout our community.
