At some point in our lives we’ve all seen a neatly ordered row of motorcycles go zooming by, whether it’s a motorcycle club or a group of friends. The FM Crusaders Motorcycle club is one such club here in Fargo-Moorhead. While you can often find them decked out in their leather jackets covered with patches while cruising around town, you can also find them being very involved in supporting CCRI. While they might sport lots of black leather, their true colors shine through in their work in the community.
For almost ten years now, the Crusaders have supported CCRI’s Camp HERO. Their annual bike show includes both a silent and live auction from which proceeds go to funding Camp HERO. The Facebook event page with a list of the items being auctioned off can be found here. In addition to hosting their annual bike show to benefit CCRI, the Crusaders are always looking for new ways to grow relationships between members of their club and the people that CCRI supports. The entry fee to show your bike at their show is thirty dollars, and you can find more information about the club and their events on their Facebook page. In the past we’ve enjoyed coordinating with the Crusaders for bowling activities and pool nights at a local billiards hall. We have been lucky enough to even have the opportunity to head down to the Crusader’s Clubhouse for a chili feed. Partnering with the Crusaders for these events has been incredibly fun and beneficial for CCRI. While some stereotypes about bikers certainly exist, the FM Crusaders love to show their true colors by repeatedly going above and beyond in caring for the community.
