"Bo Bikes Bama" charity ride benefits tornado victims

CORDOVA - AL -

Bo Jackson and hundreds of cyclists from across the country pledged to ride 20 or 60 miles through tornado ravished Cordova, Alabama to help with tornado recovery efforts still needed two years after the deadly tornado outbreak.

With a goal of $1 million dollars, all money will go to the Governor's Emergency Relief Fund to aid all who have exhausted other relief sources.

"This is something that the state needs. From the devastation two years ago, and I will preach this from now on," says Bo Jackson.

To date, Bo Bikes Bama has raised more than $600,000 for the Governor's Emergency Relief Fund, which was established by Alabama Governor Robert Bentley immediately following the devastating April 2011 storms.  The Fund helps Alabamians who have exhausted all other avenues of disaster relief provided by insurance, government funding and relief organizations. In addition to repairing and rebuilding homes, the Fund has helped build several community storm shelters to protect Alabamians from future storms.
