CRISFIELD, Md. – A local motorcycle club dedicated to helping the community, is asking for help for one of their own. Tucker Jefferson, a member of The Delmarva Riders R.C. and son of fellow member, Amy Jefferson was recently diagnosed with colon cancer at the age of 28.

In an effort to help raise money for medical bills and other expenses, the Crisfield Elk’s lodge, community members, and the motorcycle club held a benefit in his honor. We’re told the event featured auctions, music, food, vendors and even bike Olympics.

Members of the bike club tells us, they’ve done numerous charity events through out the year so their support for others only grows, when it really hits home. “This time someone in our group needed help, so so we’ve reached out to the community for help and it’s been a great turn out we’re very grateful,” says President of the Ladies Auxiliary, Jacqueline ‘Ms. Jackie’ Durret with the D.R.R.C. Vice President of D.R.R.C, Stanley Britton also tells us, “That’s what we’re trying to do here, to help one of our own it just feels good that we can give back to one of our own since we’ve been giving to so many different causes over the past year just feels good.”
