Motorcyle Ride Set To Raise Funds For Schike Memorial

Sponsored by:

Angels Camp, CA — The family and friends of fallen CDF Firefighter Eva Schicke are banding together to host a memorial motorcycle ride next weekend.

Schicke died last year fighting a fire in Tuolumne County. Organizers say they expect at least 500 riders to make the trip from The Calaveras County Fairgrounds along highway four to Bear Valley July 9th.

Proceeds from the event will go to the construction of a memorial at the CDF Helitack air facility in Columbia where Schicke was based.

Many of Schicke´s fellow fire fighters are expected to be on hand.
