ALBANY, GA (WALB) - State and county budget cuts have EMS workers in our region raising money to make sure emergency responders have the supplies they need.
Region 8 makes up 27-southwest Georgia counties. Emergency Medical Service for Children plans to host a Poker Run and Dice Roll to benefit pediatric patients. Smaller rides will be held in several cities, but organizers hope more than 600 bikes will meet in Sylvester at 2:00 May 22nd and ride to Albany's Harley Davidson Dealer to raise money for ambulance supplies.
"Everybody's budget has been cut dramatically and we know its hard on everybody but we feel that our pediatric citizens the children of southwest Georgia deserve the best we can provide for them and this is one of the ways we're going to do what we can to help them out," said Steve Ebel, EMS Shift Supervisor.
The group also held a 50/50 in advance of the run. They allowed us to pick the winning ticket. It belonged to Brian Suber, an instructor at Albany Technical College. For information on the fund raisers, (229)317-3885.
