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.
