Bike riders Inspire Teens in Children's Home

By news admin

JACKSON, Tenn. -- Bike riders from Memphis and Jackson took a trip in the cold temperatures Saturday to speak to students at New Heights School.

The Association of Recovering Motorcyclists, also known as ARM, is a group for men who won the battle against drug and alcohol addictions.

New Heights is a state children home for boys who struggle with the same issues, and have nowhere else to go.

The school says the bike riders give hope to the young men in their program.

"It just creates a better environment in the community all together when they see positive things from individuals that have had negatives in their lives," said Richard Johnston, principal of the school.

Other bike clubs at the event were Soldiers for Jesus and Sons of God.
