4th Annual Run for the Roses {September 23, 2012}

Photo & Video by Joe Goldsberry is quite honored to have been the official photographer for the third year in a row for one of the largest motorcycle runs in Massachusetts. Run for the Roses is an annual event that raises funds and awareness to help prevent domestic violence. Born out of the tragic murders of Rachel and Lillian Rose Entwistle, the annual Run for the Roses has grown to involve thousands of people coming out in support of ending domestic violence.

This year saw over 600 motorcycles participate in the run, all makes and models, all shapes and sizes, all coming together for a one greater cause.

This run isn’t supported by motorcycles alone. Classic cars line up to join in and become part of this yearly event.

Classic cars of all types come from all over New England to be a part of Run for the Roses.

Every car and every motorcycle have something in common… the people who make Run for the Roses the huge success that it has become. People come from all walks of life to this common ground, hoping to make a difference. Check out just a few of the faces who care enough to make this annual motorcycle run a priority in their lives.

The amount of time, food, raffle items, and service donated to make this all come together and happen every year is truly a sight to behold. As always, the event cumulates with a purple balloon release, sending those balloons up to the heavens where the Run for the Roses namesakes reside.
