FOXBOROUGH, Mass. (WBZ NewsRadio) — A memorial service was held Saturday for the Jarheads Fallen Seven — the seven bikers who were killed in multiple motorcycle crash in New Hampshire last month.
Hundreds of people gathered at Gillette Stadium in Foxborough for the service.
President of the Jarheads Motorcycle Club Manny Ribeiro described how amazed he was to see the amount of people that came to pay their respects.
“People from Louisiana, Illinois, Arizona. You’ve got people from all over the place, it’s just amazing,” Ribeiro said. “I just don’t want you to forget the people who died. They’re gone and we can’t bring them back. For me personally, the most important message for all of you out there is too make sure that we don’t forget the collateral damage.”
Patriots owner Robert Kraft was in attendance and spoke to the crowd at the service.
“Jarheads are what make America great as the foundation of everything that has made this country as special as it is,” Kraft said.
Kraft donated $100,000 to show his support.
"We're into loyalty and remembering who was good to us in the early times, and we stick with those people. And the Jarheads represent that," Kraft said.
