The Ride for Clay

Clay Dixon, an eight-year-old local boy, has been diagnosed with an inoperable brain tumor. Yesterday, we were honored to participate in the “Ride for Clay” sponsored by the Red Knights Motorcycle Club here in Charleston. All proceeds from the ride went to help offset Clay’s mounting medical bills. Clay wanted to ride on a fire truck in the event and we were there to see that he got his wish. A huge crowd turned out to ride and participate in the party at the end of the day. The ride began in Mt. Pleasant before traveling to Kiawah Island and on to Wadmalaw Island for the finale. Special thanks to Captain/CFST Peer Counselor Joe Johnston and his entire crew at Station 17 for hosting a stop on the ride and Battalion Chief/CFST Peer Counselor John Winn and Captain/CFST Peer Counselor Pete Salvo for their participation.
Thanks, Clay, for making OUR day!!

Thank you Chief Mishoe and Chief Wynn, Capt. Joe and crew, because seeing these boys enjoy riding the fire truck made my day. The Red Knights were happy to take a small part in this event. All the credit goes to Kelly Carroll for putting this event on, (5th Annual Daniel Glenn O'Rourk Memorial Bash Benefiting Clay Dixon). Kelly started this event in honor of her father who passed from brain cancer several years back. A special Thanks to Kelly for allowing us to attend.
