Sponsored by:

Sonora, CA — Family and friends of fallen CDF Firefighter Eva Schicke plan to construct a memorial at the CDF Helitack air facility in Columbia with the money they raised with the Motorcycle Ride Saturday.

More than 600 people were expected to participate in the ride, which started at the Calaveras County Fairgrounds and ended at Bear Valley.

Due to the fact that several people who attended the event are from out of the area, there has been a website established to keep up with the progress of the memorial at

Each rider donated $20 to participate in the ride, which included a pin and a raffle ticket.
