Brotherhood leaves a lasting legacy

Brotherhood leaves a lasting legacy

Members of the Military Brotherhood MMC ride for Legacy.

The sight of nearly 100 motorcycles roaring through Perth’s southeast last month was enough to grab anyone’s attention, but the run was all in the name of a good cause.

The Military Brotherhood Motorcycle Club organised the run to raise badly needed funds for Legacy to help out veterans and their families.

President of the Military Brotherhood MMC Rod Jonsson, otherwise known as ‘Jonno’ to his mates, said the ride started at the Rockingham RSL, before taking in the sights of Serpentine Jarrahdale and finishing at the Armadale RSL.

“When we hit Armadale RSL the fun began with raffles, an auction and then the Military Brotherhood was proud to hand over to Legacy a donation of $6000,” he said.

“The funds raised were presented to Vivian Blycha, the chief executive of Legacy WA and will actually to go towards helping the children of veterans.”

Mr Jonsson said the Military Brotherhood is holding a national meeting in November and every state making their way to South Australia.

“The WA crew will be leaving on Sunday, November 10 to head over,” he said.

“We will be discussing topics about veterans helping veterans, our welfare, veterans in our club and what we can do to keep striving forward.

“We help veterans without all the red tape when most others can not.”
