UNITED BIKERS OF MAINE FUNDRAISE
FOR THE CHARLOTTE WHITE CENTER

Continued from Home Page.
Recently, the United Bikers of Maine (UBM)-Piscataquis County held a fundraiser ride for the Charlotte White Center (CWC). The UBM Piscataquis County does fundraiser rides for non-profit organizations throughout Piscataquis County and this time it was Charlotte White Center’s turn. UBM Piscataquis County not only rides for enjoyment, they ride to help those in need. On a hot and sunny morning in July, the bikers started their ride to benefit the Charlotte White Center in Dover-Foxcroft, traveled to Mount Katahdin in Millinocket and ended their ride at CWC’s Administration building, back in Dover-Foxcroft. The clients and staff of CWC were thrilled when over 20 bikes carrying a group of UBM members rode into the parking lot. A barbecue celebration with hamburgers and hotdogs ensued and both organizations mingled and shared stories. UBM, currently a 90 plus member group, raised $1,200 for the Charlotte White Center and its services, which range from day program services to residential services for individuals with cognitive or developmental disabilities, behavioral or mental health issues, or acquired brain injuries. UBM raised funds through a donation for the riders to participate, selling tee-shirts, gaining sponsorships, etc., with all monies raised going to the CWC.
