What involves several communities, 33 motorcycles, 25 cars and a lot of heart?
A benefit ride for Bailey Hamilton — that’s what.
Bailey is a senior at Salem High School and is in the hospital facing several medical challenges.
He’s in need of prayers and support from the community.
Bailey has already been awarded his diploma in the hospital, but his dream is to be in the graduation program at SHS with his classmates in a couple of weeks. His classmates and friends set up a scholarship in his name and dedicated it at a recent honor’s day program at the school.
Yesterday afternoon, several weeks of hard work paid off when the RIDE FOR BAILEY took place along a path from Salem, through Paoli and back to Campbellsburg that involved the football teams from Salem, Paoli and West Washington.
More than $6600 was raised on Sunday through a benefit ride and auction held at Jimmy’s Place.
The event was planned by Hamilton family friends Diana Campbell, Lori McPeak and several others.
“I woke up one morning and decided we needed to do something,” said Campbell. “It’s taken a lot of hard work but it’s so great to see the community come together.”
