2012 Ride for Life flyer.
The 2011 EMS “Ride for Life” was for one of our own. EMS instructor, and volunteer firefighter J. Robinson was diagnosed with leukemia. With his diagnosis came numerous trips to Seattle, doctor appointments, time off work, and more. The EMS and Fire community pulled together and on June 18th, 2011 we were joined by our motorcycle riding friends. We rode from Owen’s Harley of Yakima to Bickelton, WA and back to Yakima’s Glenwood Square Mall “The Rec Room Bar & Grill”. Thanks to everyone who participated, a special thanks to Owens Harley of Yakima and The Rec Room Bar & Grill. Thanks to people like all of you we were able to raise over $800. In addition, a hot dog feed was conducted, hosted by the City of Yakima Fire Department. Organizers were Cara Bardwell of Advanced Life Systems and Diane Koch of the Yakima County Department of EMS. Thanks to the community they raised over $1,800 for the Robinson family.
