Brian Rich Jr. will be remembered as an individual who thought outside the box. He was never afraid to take chances. He truly believed that the offroad community could make a significant positive impact on local communities. He wanted to structure it to continuously invigorate the coal region. He was tremendously passionate about giving back to the community. With this annual toy drive, we will not only be commemorating Brian’s vision, but also helping ensure the less fortunate area ble to celebrate a Merry Christmas. The overwhelming support and generosity of the FRO members is a true testament to Brian’s memory. He was a strong leader that brought a dream to life and strived to see the area continuously improve.
