Ripple Foundation

When Wade Ripple's father was tragically killed in a car wreck, his life was turned upside down instantly. But through the grief and loss, he and his family have chose to honor and celebrate the life of Chris Ripple as they left bitterness at the door. One recent project was to host a motor show with proceeds from the event used to purchase and restore a van to be donated through Northeast Community Fund to a Macon County family in need.
