Morgantown, West Virginia:
On Saturday, September 24, 2022, in honor of the opening of the new WVU Children’s Hospital, the long-distance motorcycle charity riders of Hoagy’s Heroes delivered their largest gift ever to the Ronald McDonald House Charities of Morgantown, WV. The Robinette Legal Group, PLLC was honored to host and provide a meal for the riders.
Hoagy’s Heroes, under the leadership of Robert (Hoagy) Carmichael, transported nearly 500 gallons of aluminum tabs collected from all over the US and Canada and also raised a cash donation of $12,050.00 for the Ronald McDonald House of Morgantown.
This will provide approximately 144 days of housing and meals for the parents of critically ill children who are being treated at the WVU Children’s Hospital.
Participants for the tabs delivery to the Ronald McDonald House included riders from Canada, West Virginia, Ohio, Pennsylvania, Kentucky, South Carolina, Massachusetts, Michigan, Indiana, Virginia, and Maryland.
Hoagy’s Heroes recognizes that the true Heroes are the children who have been diagnosed as having life-threatening disorders and illnesses, those struggling with autism, and the kids who have lost a parent who was serving Our Country. We salute these brave families.
So, Hoagy’s Heroes is committed to raising funds to allow others to enjoy the wonderful things many of us take for granted. Riders have raised hundreds of thousands of dollars in gifts for A Special Wish Foundation, the Children of Fallen Soldiers Relief Fund, the Augusta Levy Learning Center for Autism, and the Ronald McDonald House Charities in Morgantown.
To date, Hoagy’s Heroes raised over $360,000.00 in pledges for the charities they support and have traveled over 1,593,122 miles of smiles. These rides would not be possible without the magnificent support of volunteers.
The all-volunteer Hoagy’s Heroes staff spend countless hours planning and organizing each ride, while dozens of event day volunteers provide essential support at the beginning and end of each ride. In the past, these event day volunteers have included veterans, staff of local motorcycle dealerships, law enforcement officers, firefighters, members of civic organizations, local businesses, and spouses and friends of many participants in the rides.
