'Voice' rallying cycles to support School for Deaf
For the second year in a
row, East Carolina Director of Electronic Media Jeff Charles will
leverage his penchant for motorcycles into helping a good cause.
The second annual “Ride With
The Voice,” benefiting the Eastern North Carolina School for the Deaf, will
be staged Saturday, Aug. 20. Registration for the event will begin at 8 a.m.
that day at J&E Harley Davidson in Winterville.
Charles is the longtime
play-by-play voice for ECU football and basketball broadcasts.
Funds raised from the ride
will be used to benefit the athletic teams at the historic Wilson school,
which serves 53 counties. Riders collected over $3,000 in donations for the
school last year.
The convoy of motorcycle
riders will be led by Charles over a route that ultimately will conclude at
Ron Ayers Motorsports in Greenville.
An ECU news releasing
announcing the event noted that donations may be sent to Dave Richmond,
