By: Jordan Munoz – Fundraiser
In 2016, Jordan Munoz was fatally injured in a motorcycle accident after an evening workout at Planet Fitness in Pueblo, Colorado, where he was an employee.
Jordan’s family wanted to raise awareness on Jordan’s birthday anniversary; he would have turned 27. This was the 3rd year celebrating Jordan’s life and memory. The owners of Planet Fitness honored his memory by asking everyone to Run for Jordan on August 13, 2018 at Planet Fitness.
Jordan’s family this year chose BikerDown as their charity of choice, and BikerDown had assisted Jordan’s family at the time of Jordan’s passing. This was their way of giving back to not only BikerDown, but to help other families within the biker community.
On August 22, 2018 Planet Fitness presented BikerDown with a check for $514.00 which translated to over 514 miles run in Jordan’s memory.
Executive Director Laurie Montoya was present for the presentation and commented that these types of donations are so vital to help future injured riders. This act of kindness and involving those outside the biker community helps raise awareness for riders. On behalf of BikerDown, we are so thankful to have family members help continue the mission of helping injured motorcycle riders.
