LANSING, Mich. (WSYM) – Dozens of motorcyclists are using the death of a Mid-Michigan man as a way to raise awareness about safety on the road.
21-year-old Blair Beck was killed in September 2017 on Martin Luther King Junior Boulevard near Ferley Street in Lansing. Police tell FOX 47 News Beck was hit by a Jeep that turned in front of him.
The Buck Buckerson Foundation has since been formed
Foundation members gathered at Full Throttle Motorsports in Lansing to educate the public about what to be aware of when driving near a motorcycle.
Beck’s father says nobody should have to bury their child.
“(Blair was) a good driver, good individual on the road, considerate of others,” said Mike Beck. “If there was somebody on the road that actually paid attention to what was going on, he’d still be with us today.”

DANVILLE — Danville police are looking for a Danville man they believe to be responsible for a double homicide that occurred early Saturday at a motorcycle club in the city.
Three people were shot about 2 a.m. in the altercation at the Untouchables Motorcycle Club, 106 Commercial St., according to Director of Public Safety Larry Thomason.
Two men, ages 23 and 17, were killed. A 36-year-old man was being treated for non-life-threatening injuries. All three are from Danville.
By 6 a.m. Saturday, Thomason said, police had obtained a warrant for the arrest of Deontae N. Bright, 18, of Danville. Bond on the warrant was set at $5 million.
Thomason said police were called to the club around 2 a.m. for shots fired. The club sits on 40 acres, which includes a race track, on the city’s south side.
“Officers arriving found three male victims believed to have been shot,” Thomason said. “The individuals were found outside on the grounds of the club and medical transport was called for. Two of the victims were later pronounced deceased and the third was being treated for non-life-threatening injuries.”
Thomason said the names of the victims are not being released pending notification of family by the Vermilion County coroner’s office.
He said no other information is being released as the investigation continues.
A member of the club said the Untouchables were hosting an event this weekend. The club’s Facebook page advertised a “Father’s Day Weekend Annual Field Meet” for Friday through Sunday. The club member said activities were to include a dance Saturday night and a race on Sunday.
He said some people had gathered for a party on Friday night, and there was a shooting outside of the club in the early hours of the morning.
He said it didn’t involve any members or their guests, but people who had come on to the property.
FRESNO, Calif. (FOX26) — Dozens of children will now get to go to a special camp in Wonder Valley Ranch, all thanks to a donation by a Valley motorcycle club.
Riders with the Wind & Fire motorcycle club met with kids at Champ Camp, an annual camp for kids who survived burns.
Some of these riders are also the same heroes who that saved their lives.
They are active duty and retired firefighters or families of firefighters.
Riders tell us this is something they look forward to every year.
Javier Lara, president of the Wind & Fire Fresno chapter, said, “There’s times that we’re able to put the firefighter together with the person they saved.. and that’s just amazing.. seeing the faces of the kids when they’re up there, having them get on the bikes, take pictures with the bikes, that interaction is just amazing.”
We’re told the ride raised more than $10,000.
This is the 33rd anniversary of the Champ Camp for burn survivors.
