GHG was honored to participate in Fidelco’s 5th Annual Ride for Independence. As reported by CT’s Fox News:
BLOOMFIELD – Six-hundred motorcycles took to the streets to raise money to help provide guide dogs to the blind, especially military veterans.
The fifth annual Fidelco Ride for Independence followed a 50-mile scenic route through Farmington Valley with a police escort, before bikers headed back to Fidelco for lunch, music, and K-9 demonstrations.
Money raised goes to benefit the Fidelco Guide Dog Foundation, which trains the guide dogs and provides them to those in need.

Erika’s first attempt at NEFR was the first gravel event she completed in her two wheel drive Subaru Impreza, then with coach Jason Smith navigating. “It has been a long time since I have been on these roads and will be a first for Mary, so our plan is to stay clean and hope to put in good times.” Continue reading
