HOUSTON, TX, August 30, 2019 /24-7PressRelease/ -- Houston law firm D. Miller & Associates, PLLC's charitable outreach program, DMA Cares, hosted the city's third annual motorcycle ride benefitting victims of traumatic brain injury (TBI). The ride attracted more than 200 bike riders from across Texas and ultimately raised $1,098. The firm donated all the proceeds to the Brain Injury Association of America.
"In our 20 years of representing the people of Houston, we have seen many terrible injuries, but few of them compare to the tragedy of a traumatic brain injury," said Darren A. Miller, Founder and Senior Attorney at D. Miller & Associates, PLLC. "As soon as a TBI happens, a person's entire life changes—they struggle with cognitive impairment, depression, loss of muscle control, and memory problems. That is just the beginning.
"Recovery is long, difficult, and expensive, and leaves the victim and their family to very different lives," Attorney D. Miller continued. "Our heart goes out to these victims. This is the reason why we started this motorcycle ride fundraiser three years ago. We shall continue hosting the event so long as TBI challenges the lives of accident victims."
Riders in this year's "Ride for TBI" enjoyed a police escort on their 45-mile trek that started in Stafford, Texas, and dipped southwest before heading north on 99 state highway, then east on I-10, and finally settling in Bunker Hill Village. Riders also enjoyed food, a live DJ, and giveaways.
Co-hosts for the event included All Hands On The Throttle Motorcycle Club HOTT - HTX, Black Sabbath Motorcycle Club - HTX, Kingz Motorcycle Club - Killeen, Crown Kings Motorcycle Club - HTX, Cycles In Action (C.I.A.) Motorcycle Club – Beaumont, TX, and Smitty's Club and Sports Bar – San Antonio, TX.
Sponsors hailed the event as a "huge success…beyond amazing." Riders expressed equal enthusiasm.
"Can't wait to do it all over again," raved Samuel Alfred of Cycles in Action (C.I.A.) Motorcycle Club – Beaumont, TX, committing in his Facebook statement to "go bigger and better" next year.
