Manuel Lucio: Riding for a Cause
|This year Manuel Lucio set out to fulfill a dream many adults have: to splurge on a new Harley-Davidson motorcycle. The decision isn’t a selfish one, though. He can honestly say he’s doing it for the children. You see, Manuel volunteers with the San Antonio chapter of Guardians of the Children (GOC), a 501(c) 3 nonprofit organization that brings bikers together to provide courage, support, and protection to abused children and teens. Manuel started volunteering with GOC last year as a way to use his love of motorcycles to help give back. Read the full article here.|
