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.

Zavier GonzalesZavier Gonzales is but one of the million+ children who have been treated by the Shriners Hospitals for Children. Born with a little foot that only had three toes and nearly no ankle, Zavier underwent the amputation of his foot at eight months of age at the Shriners Hospitals for Children - Tampa. Now fitted with a prosthesis, Zavier is able to perform the activities of a 2 1/2 year old.

hospital exteriorShriners Hospitals for Children began in 1922 in Shreveport, Louisiana and expanded to twenty-two hospitals in the United States, Mexico and Canada. They are a one-of-a-kind pediatric hospital system dedicated to improving the lives of children through state of the art care for *spinal cord injuries *burns *cleft lip/palate and * orthopedics. Shriners Hospitals for Children Is A Qualified 501 (C)3 Nonprofit Organization and all services are provided regardless of the patients' ability to pay.
Shiners Hospitals for Children - Tampa will receive the net proceeds from THE RIDE. It provides the full spectrum of the orthopedic care, servicing 17,000 children a year. Because of its 501 (c)3 status, it relies heavily on donations from Shriners and the public to continue. That is why we, the Bahia Shrine, use no paid employees for the ride, teaming with volunteers and Sam Swope, our benefactor, to raise funds.
