The motorcycle club, Speed Limit Riders, is making sure some local elementary school children have positive role models.

The group has adopted T.J. Harris and Oakland Heights elementary schools and plan to have a presence at the two schools.

Members of the club Thursday brought donations of school supplies to the schools to jump start their commitment to the students.

"Our kids need to see men and women, especially the African-American community, that are positive and successful, that are hard working and let them have some positive role models that really care," said member Terrence Roberts.

Roberts says the group hopes to be able to visit the campuses every week and that their commitment to the schools goes beyond the end of this school year.

    I'm proud of this group trying to make a difference in these young lives. The children will always remember the good done by them.

    Way to go,It's time men and woman stand up and help these children who don't have role models at home.
