My name is Sarah Sleeter, i'm from Menifee CA. Our reason for Ride fo Route 91 is to raise money for 3 local families affected by the tragedy that unfolded at the Route 91 Harvet festival. Their stories touched our hearts and we wanted to get a community behind them to show love and support. This is our reason...
On October 1, we stood in a crowd enjoying a country music concert, when a senseless act of 1 man took away lives and changed lives forever. We received so much love and support this past week, and now we feel it’s our duty and part of our healing in this journey to support our community that was affected. To the beautiful Moms who went to that concert and didn’t come home to their children and to the Moms who lives are changed from the injuries they sustained that night. For all the people who reached out to us, with so much love and support, we hope you can reach a little further and support those who are on our hearts, the ones who didn’t come home and the ones who need a little extra help right now.
Sarah Sleeter, Kathy Hubbard, Melissa Kaminski, Leslie Diorio and Lynn Franco.
