ROANOKE COUNTY, Va. (WFXR) — The Roanoke Valley Jeep Club holds countless charity rides throughout the year to help drum up both money and awareness for numerous nonprofits in the area.
“We’re trying to really bring awareness to every type of charity,” said Christian D.K., the co-creator of the Roanoke Valley Jeep Club.
One of those nonprofits sponsored by the Roanoke Valley Jeep Club is Spikes K9 Fund, which used donations from numerous sponsors to build a K9 agility course at the Roanoke County Police Department on Saturday, Aug. 1.
In order to raise funds for Spikes K9 Fund, the club held a special ride with the goal of raising $200 for the fund. However, not only did the members of the Roanoke Valley Jeep Club meet their goal, but they surpassed it by raising $1,825 for Spikes K9 Fund.
According to the Roanoke Valley Jeep Club, they’re both happy their organization exceeded their goal, as well as proud to cruise for a purpose.
