ALBION – A motorcycle group that raises funds for non-profit agencies and also gives toys to hundreds of local children is planning a 40-mile motorcycle ride on May 13 to benefit the Justice for Children Advocacy Center.

Frosty and Friends will be escorted by Orleans County Sheriff’s Department on the ride. Frosty and Friends is looking to assist Justice for Children, an organization based in Batavia that serves children who are victims of abuse.

“We will be doing a lot more in the future to support them,” said Sean Paul, Frosty’s director. “At Christmas time we donated over 100 toy rescue pets for them to give to the kids during intake interviews.”

Justice for Children provides forensic interviews, victim advocacy, medical exams, mental health counseling and other services.

Frosty and Friends during the Christmas holiday distributed toys out to nearly 1,000 kids and helped five other nonprofits during an event at the Arnold Gregory Office Building. The bikers for charity motorcycle group has an office at Arnold Gregory, 243 S. Main St., Suite 235.

The ride on May 13 starts at the Arnold Gregory site and ends at the Old Crow Motorcycle Club at 2355 Peter Smith Rd. in Kent. Emelio Sebastian, pastor of Jubilee Christian Church in Brockport, will offer a bike blessing before the ride.

The event runs from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. with music, food and drinks, games, vendors and bike blessings. To ride, the cost is $20 for the bike and $5 for a passenger. At the Old Crow, for those not on the ride, admission is $15 per adult and $5 per child.

Registration begins at 10 a.m. with kick stands up at 12:15 p.m. to head out for the ride around the county.

The Old Crow in Kent will host the end-of-ride party with food, drink, live music, vendors and raffles.
