Year after year, the Steele Angels help local families. Nov. 19 is the group’s annual Toy Run. It is an event that started 13 years ago. The Steele Angels Riding Club includes members from Cumberland County and surrounding counties who share a common interest - motorcycling. The club’s purpose is to aid and assist needy and distressed families in and around Cumberland County. The members are concerned with the community as a whole and they promote a sisterhood of compassion and support and an understanding among the club members.
Although there are several motorcycle clubs in the Fayetteville area, this club chose not to be sculpted and created in the same sense as a “motorcycle club.” This was a decision they made in 2004. They choose to help children and they just happen to ride motorcycles. One thing the Steele Angels always say is that motorcyclists have the biggest hearts whether you are in a club or an independent ride. They all have something in common … they all love to ride and they all have big hearts.
The Steele Angels want to make a difference in a child’s life. Over the years there have been several runs and involvement in many events, but due to so many organizations, there are events held almost every weekend, so the Steele Angels just stick to having two events a year. Their main mission is to help distressed women and children in the area. They share a common ideology that to better our community, we must contribute to the social, physical and mental well-being of children, women and families in crisis.
This organization provides monetary and physical support to several local non-profit charities and organizations. The Steele Angels motorcycle club provides relief to local families in annual events such as the Toy Run and Back to School Run. The Toy Run is always the Saturday before Thanksgiving and the Back to School Run is in August before school starts.
This year’s Toy Run registration is from 11 a.m.-12:45 p.m. at Legends Pub on Bragg Blvd. on Nov. 19. The escorted ride leaves Legends Pub at
