About the run
Mike Trzepacz was a member of Lake View Volunteer Fire Department and Red Knight .He headed up the high angle rescue team for the department and was involved in many organizations and associations during his short life. Because of these commitments, Mike was well liked and made many friends throughout the Western New York area. Sadly on Memorial Day weekend 2009 Mike was involved in a motorcycle accident and passed as a result of the injuries he sustained.
Each year since that, his friends and family have held a motorcycle run on Memorial Day weekend to honor Mikes memory and to raise needed money for organizations and charities that were dear to Mike.
It is hard to believe that this will be the 9th year for this run. To date we have raised over 75,000 for these worthwhile causes. This year we have designated Make-A-Wish of Western New York and Roswell Cancer Center along with Lakeview Volunteer Fire Company as beneficiaries.
Each year we incorporate different ideas to make this a memorable ride for all our riders. We are sure you will have a great ride. There will be multiple stops for food and refreshments and a drive by St. Vincents Cemetery to introduce Mike to his new friends that have joined for the ride.
