Little Girl's Wish For Motorcycle Parade Comes True

The Make a Wish Foundation and The Albemarle Chapter of Bikers for Christ joined forces with local law enforcement, rescue crews and bikers to make a dream come true for a litte girl.

Hailey Williams of Washington is just three and is very ill. We are told her wish was to have a motorcycle parade.

Organizers say more than 75 bikes and 120 bikers from a dozen local bike clubs as well as 16 fire trucks, EMS and sheriff's office cars took part in the parade this weekend on VOA Road in Washington.

Organizers say Hailey sat in her mother's lap as each group came by, stopped, gave her a rose and prayed or encouraged her.

    This is for all of you who think that bikers are bad. I am a biker myself and we get a bad rap but 95% of us bikers are good Christian people. God bless these bikers and God be with Hailey and her family.

    The Albemarle Chapter of Bikers for Christ truly set the example of what God whats us to all be like. Love your neighbor as yourself. They organized this parade less than a week. The parade was heart wrenching. To see grown men and women give this child of God those roses and praying I knew that God does send people in our lives for a purpose. The children had so much fun on the slide and bouncey tent that they got for the party. I laughed at the children until I could not take it. My family had a wonderful time. Thanks to all the people who made this an awesome day for Hailey and her family. Hailey is a gift from God. She has touched many peoples lives with her humor and her honesty. Thanks Joey Adams for the Pete Jones baraque it was the best. Thanks to everyone who came and for your prayers for Hailey and her family. May God bless you. This was an awesome day!! I will never forget it!!
