Event planned to honor woman killed in Randolph Co. wreck
ASHEBORO, N.C. — A motorcycle ride honoring the memory of an 18-year-old woman killed in a single-vehicle wreck in June in Randolph County is planned for Saturday.
“Katelyn’s Ride,” will honor Katelyn Mary Lynch. It is planned to start at Cox’s Harley Davidson at 2795 NC Hwy 134 in Asheboro and end at Main Street South Steakhouse at 615 South Main Street in Randleman.
Organizers said registration starts at 9:30 a.m. and the ride is planned for 10:45.
Admission is $25 per rider and $4 each additional rider. Organizers said the event will benefit the Katelyn Mary Lynch Memorial Nursing Scholarship.
The entry fee will also cover drink, chips and two hot dogs, organizers said. Live music also benefiting the scholarship will begin at After Hours Tavern at 614 N. Main St, in High Point at 8 p.m.
Officials said Lynch was killed shortly before 12:15 a.m. June 14 when the Toyota SUV she was driving went off the shoulder of a roadway near Randleman.
Troopers originally said they suspected alcohol to be a factor, but authorities have since confirmed that alcohol was not a factor.
“My wife and I couldn’t have asked for a better kid,” said Katelyn’s father, Kevin Lynch, according to a previous report.
