Lawyers support motorcycle ride for charity

Back to TopE-mailPrintBookmark and Share

Indianapolis attorneys and a law firm are among the sponsors and participants in a scenic motorcycle ride Saturday to benefit the children of Christel House, based in Indianapolis with locations around the world.

The Braking the Cycle Ride, 105 miles from Indianapolis to Nashville and back, is open to all riders. It starts with a registration and breakfast at 9 a.m. at the Christel House Academy, 2717 S. East St., Indianapolis. Registrations are accepted the morning of the event, but organizers encourage riders to pre-register by calling (317) 464-2030. The ride will start at 10 a.m., and is expected to end back in Indianapolis around noon with a lunch for participants.

The title sponsor is Hensley Legal Group. Sponsor 317 Ryders Motorcycle Club, including its vice president, Indianapolis attorney Jimmie “Tic Tac” McMillian, and his wife Tamara McMillian, also an attorney, will be there and have asked the legal community to support and participate in the ride. Last year’s event raised $10,000.

Funds raised by the ride – $25 per rider and $40 per rider and passenger, which includes a t-shirt, breakfast, and lunch – will help Christel House Academy break the cycle of poverty while giving its students a chance to be self-sustaining, productive members of society.

“Worldwide, over 3,000 children, 279 graduates, 1,500 parents and countless community members are benefiting from Christel House Programs,” according to the organization’s website. In addition to the Indianapolis charter school, Christel House has programs in India, Mexico, South Africa, Venezuela, and Serbia.

More information about the ride is on the website, www.brakingthecycleride.org. The brochure can be found here.

  1. Such things are no more elections than those in the late, unlamented Soviet Union.

  2. It appears the police and prosecutors are allowed to change the rules halfway through the game to suit themselves. I am surprised that the congress has not yet eliminated the right to a trial in cases involving any type of forensic evidence. That would suit their foolish law and order police state views. I say we eliminate the statute of limitations for crimes committed by members of congress and other government employees. Of course they would never do that. They are all corrupt cowards!!!

  3. Poor Judge Brown probably thought that by slavishly serving the godz of the age her violations of 18th century concepts like due process and the rule of law would be overlooked. Mayhaps she was merely a Judge ahead of her time?

  4. in a lawyer discipline case Judge Brown, now removed, was presiding over a hearing about a lawyer accused of the supposedly heinous ethical violation of saying the words "Illegal immigrant." (IN re Barker) http://www.in.gov/judiciary/files/order-discipline-2013-55S00-1008-DI-429.pdf .... I wonder if when we compare the egregious violations of due process by Judge Brown, to her chiding of another lawyer for politically incorrectness, if there are any conclusions to be drawn about what kind of person, what kind of judge, what kind of apparatchik, is busy implementing the agenda of political correctness and making off-limits legit advocacy about an adverse party in a suit whose illegal alien status is relevant? I am just asking the question, the reader can make own conclsuion. Oh wait-- did I use the wrong adjective-- let me rephrase that, um undocumented alien?

  5. of course the bigger questions of whether or not the people want to pay for ANY bussing is off limits, due to the Supreme Court protecting the people from DEMOCRACY. Several decades hence from desegregation and bussing plans and we STILL need to be taking all this taxpayer money to combat mostly-imagined "discrimination" in the most obviously failed social program of the postwar period.
