Chicopee motorcycle ride raises money for Lauren Meizo’s medical costs

Hampden County

Motorcycles, jeeps and muscle cars were on display Saturday afternoon in support of double heart and kidney transplant recipient Lauren Meizo.

The ride began at the View Street Tavern in Chicopee. 

Meizo rode in a brand new 2018 Jeep Wrangler during the ride. She told 22News it’s something she’s been looking forward to for months.

Meizo told 22News, “I’ve always had an interest in motorcycles, and being in the hospital you feel confined, and when you’re on the back of a motorcycle or in a jeep with the top down, you just feel free. So it’s definitely something I was looking forward to for months.”

All proceeds from Saturday’s fundraiser will go towards Lauren Meizo’s medical bills.
