Sam Swope was a 50 year + Shriner and motorcycle rider. He began his sponsorship of THE RIDE in 2009. Through his generosity and that of riders, businesses, corporate donations and volunteers, the Bahia Shrine has raised over $800,000. Sam's commitment for THE RIDE was to match what we raised up to $100,000!

The passing of Sam Swope is a loss for all of us especially the children who benefitted from Sam’s immense generosity.
