rothers’ Keepers Motorcycle Club 8th will be kicking off 2019 with the first annual “Ark-La-Tex Burn Run” March 29-30, at Spring Lake Park. This is a 2-day event with all proceeds going to the benefit children at Watersprings Ranch and “Camp I’m Still Me” in Scottsville, Texas.
As the BKMC chapter continues to grow, so does our dedication. You’re invited you to be a vital part of helping to change a child’s life. Camp I’m Still Me is a summer camp dedicated to children who are burn survivors. These children are able to go to camp without stares, ridicule, or judgement and are able to attend completely FREE. Just this past June 2018, the combined efforts of several BKMC chapters presented Camp I’m Still Me with a check for $92,000.
The Biker Bash kicks things off at 7PM until 11PM Saturday, March 29, at the Texas Elks Lodge #2771. $20 per person includes dinner, auction, and live band. .

In December 2018, BKMC along with several other motorcycle clubs in the Texarkana area gathered together at Watersprings Ranch and provided food, household items, clothing, money, Christmas presents, and motorcycle rides for 30 children. Watersprings Ranch is a privately owned safe haven for children that have been abused, neglected or unwanted. It is a non-government funded home ran by a wonderful group of people who have dedicated their lives to providing for these children and even sending them to college, if they so choose.
Brothers’ Keepers Motorcycle Club 8th is located Texarkana, Texas, and is among 36 BKMC chapters that span across the U.S., Canada and Australia. They consists of a group of retired and active firefighters, EMT and paramedics, along with supportive families, who have dedicated not only their lives to helping others but a club dedicated to helping children in our area.
The non-profit organization participates in several charities including Toys For Tots and assist and support our fellow chapter’s events and fundraising efforts as well but two of the main organizations they support are Watersprings Ranch in Texarkana, Ark., and Camp I’m Still Me in Scottsville, Texas.
