MEDINA – Scott Caraboolad and three other members of the Ride 4 Life team did a stunt show on Thursday evening at Medina’s Canal Basin. They also performed Thursday morning at Lyndonville Central School.
The team does daring feats on motorcycles and also gives a message of overcoming addictions and hopelessness. The team travelled to Orleans County from near Akron, Ohio. Ride 4 Life is also performing today at Kendall Central School and at 6 p.m. in Albion in front of the County Courthouse.
They will be doing three shows on Saturday, from noon to 6 p.m., at the Orleans County 4-H Fairgrounds in Knowlesville.
Scott Caraboolad talks to the crowd in Medina. He shared about becoming a Christian in 2010. His faith has helped him turn away from drugs. “It was all darkness in front of me,” he said. “I was going to end my life. God gave me a second chance.”

Pastors Aligned for Community Transformation, the Orleans County Sheriff’s Office and several other agencies and organizations worked to bring the Ride 4 Life to the community for the second straight year.
There is no admission charge to attend an event.
