At Law Tigers, we are passionate about helping the local rider communities we serve and providing charitable support whenever we can.
We’re especially proud of our partnership with Ride Oklahoma Charities, an Oklahoma-based nonprofit, to provide funding, raise awareness, and physically support its worthy causes. Read on to learn more about this deserving charity and the upcoming events our team will support.
What Is Ride Oklahoma Charities?
Ride Oklahoma Charities (ROC) is a nonprofit organization that organizes fundraising events to support communities, local businesses, and individuals throughout Oklahoma. This biker organization holds monthly meetings and hosts or sponsors several charity events each year.
ROC helps the local community in big and small ways. For example, the organization is known for helping community members move houses or transport items to storage units. However, the organization has also sponsored major charity events, such as a toy drive that collected over 400 toys for children at or below the poverty level.
The Ride Oklahoma Charities group consists primarily of bikers throughout the state. However, anyone is welcome to join this organization or volunteer at events to support local communities around Oklahoma. Monthly meetings take place at the Veterans of Foreign Affairs in Oklahoma City.

Ride Oklahoma Charities hosts and sponsors events throughout the year that raise funds for local Oklahoma charities and worthy causes. Here are a few events coming up in 2022:
