    John Marshall raises $5,000 for Fisher House

    Motorcyclists gathered outside John Marshall Bank’s Leesburg branch for a ride to raise money for Wounded Warriors.
    Bill Ridenour has a passion for motorcycles and for those who have served our nation.

    So Ridenour, the president and chief administrative officer of John Marshall Bank, organized a motorcycle tour to raise money for Wounded Warriors.

    More than 70 bikers participated in the ride, taking them on a rural route through the Virginia countryside to a lunch rendezvous at The Museum of the Shenandoah Valley. Many veterans participated as did clients and friends of the bank.

    Ridenour said the event raised $5,000 for Fisher House, a network of comfort homes that provides military families housing close to a loved one during hospitalization for an illness, disease or injury.

    “Raising funds to help meet the needs of those who have sacrificed so much is the right thing to do,” said Ridenour.

    The bank plans to build on momentum and team with Boulder Crest Retreat beginning in 2015. Boulder Crest, located in Bluemont provides veterans and their families free accommodations in a serene, first-class retreat. It enables them to recover from visible and invisible wounds by providing rest and reconnection time, reintegration training and non-traditional recreational therapies.

    Based in Reston with a Loudoun County regional branch in Leesburg, John Marshall Bank is ranked by bank analyst SNL as one of the top 100 community banks in the U.S. John Marshall Bank first opened under that name to the public in May 2008.

    Comments

    We pray for everybody to be safe out there and request the motorcyclists to be on the defensive and to be vigilant. We want automobiles to be aware and watch for riders, too. The failure of motorists to detect and recognize motorcycles in traffic is the predominating cause of motorcycle accidents. Conspicuity of the motorcycle is a critical factor in multiple vehicle accidents. Accident involvement is significantly reduced by the use of motorcycle headlamps-on in daylight and the wearing of high visibility yellow, orange or bright red jackets.

    God bless all.


    Kudos to this man and those who rode their motorcycles for Wounded Warriors.
