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.


Please join us for our first memorial ride of FRO owner Brian R Rich Jr, Saturday, December 10, 2022. We ask for each participant to bring a new, unwrapped toy that will benefit Minersville Elementary Christmas Toy program. These toys will be presented at the Minersville Tree Lightening at 6pm.
