Patrios owner Robert Kraft surprised the Jarheads Motorcycle Club Saturday with a six-figure donation to help the families of the seven motorcyclists who were killed in a crash in New Hampshire last month.
Kraft, who attended the club's gathering in Gillette Stadium, announced the $100,000 donation to the club's GoFundMe campaign, according to reports from WBZ and NBC 10.
Thousands of motorcyclists from New Hampshire and surrounding states took to the roads Saturday to honor and remember seven people, five of them Marines, who died in a horrific crash on June 21 in Randolph.
As bikes roared into the Gulf service station on 28-Bypass in Manchester Saturday morning, Steve Allison, one of the organizers of the Ride for the Fallen 7 to benefit the families of those killed, said he was overwhelmed by the response. He didn't know many of the riders who turned out, but he said, "These people are my family."
Packages containing suspected heroin were found in the home of the driver charged with killing seven motorcyclists Friday in the North Country, authorities said Monday.
Massachusetts State Police said the packages were discovered when its Violent Fugitive Apprehension Section and New Hampshire State police arrested Volodymyr Zhukovskyy, 23, at his West Springfield home. The packages will be tested for heroin, they said.
Zhukovskyy faces seven counts of negligent homicide in connection with the North Country crash on Friday evening that killed seven riders associated with Jarhead Motorcycle Club, a club for Marines and select Navy corpsmen.
