The local chapter of the Fire and Iron Motorcycle Club, whose membership includes volunteer firefighters from throughout Oswego County, held its thunder in the creek fund raising event with more than 160 motorcyclists participating.
The group donated $500 of the revenue raised from the event for the Oswego Hospital’s new c-section recovery room and its advanced equipment.
The new facility allows babies born during c-sections to bond more quickly with their mothers after birth.
Fire and Iron made its gift in memory of one of its own, whose family wishes to remain anonymous.
“We are grateful to community organizations who support the healthcare needs of our community” said Karen Ferguson, director of the Oswego Health Foundation
