A well-known Whiteville firefighter will be honored Saturday with a fundraising ride.
Michael Stanley died May 11 as a result of injuries sustained in a motorcycle crash in Brunswick County. He was a popular member of fire departments in both Whiteville and New Hanover County, and lived in Whiteville.
Stanley loved traveling, especially on his motorcycle, and Saturday’s tribute to him will give participants a chance to spend some time remembering the fireman as well as enjoying a road trip.
The Thin Red Line Ride to support the family of Whiteville Firefighter Michael Stanley begins Saturday, Aug. 1 at 10 a.m. The ride will start at the Columbus County Fairgrounds. Cost is $20 per carload, or $15 per bike and $5 per rider.
All proceeds go to the Stanley family.
There is no pre-registration, but participants are asked to show up ready to ride.
