B.U.D.’S Foundation

As a motorcycle accident attorney, I am proud to be on the Board of Directors of the B.U.D.‘S Foundation, headquartered in the Wilson/Rocky Mount area.  The Foundation educates the public regarding motorcycle awareness and promotes motorcycle riding safety.  The Foundation also maintains a fund to assist injured riders or the families of fallen riders with expenses.  It also helps with locating supportive counseling for those dealing with grief related to a motorcycle accident-related injury or fatality.  Moreover, the Foundation awards yearly scholarships to deserving students in the memory of fallen riders.

The signature event for B.U.D.’S is the annual Fallen Riders Fundraiser Weekend.  The weekend of September 11, 2021, was the 11th annual event. Scholarships were awarded, there was a special tribute to Lewis “The Godfather” Clark, a charity ride took place, and awards were given for bike show and  sound competition winners.

I want to thank the motorcycle clubs and social clubs that helped host the event – Twist & Turn MC of Clayton, Street Stunnaz MC of LaGrange, Flyin High Kings MC of Smithfield, Hook-n-Go MC of Smithfield, and Twisted Divas SS of Clayton.  The weekend could not have been a success without attendance from a number of other North Carolina motorcycle clubs and social clubs, along with  a few out-of-clubs.  Here is a list of the clubs that I saw: that were represented at the event such as:
