The Sapphires not only help military veterans, they also support the Oshkosh Police Department's K-9 unit, Christine Ann Domestic Abuse Services and people battling serious medical issues. Next year, they plan to team-up with the Oshkosh Fire Department as well.
NEENAH, Wis. — The rev of their engines. The breeze in their hair. The camaraderie. There's so much the Sapphires enjoy about their all-female motorcycle group, but number one Is riding for a reason.
"We're a strong sisterhood," said Leslie Schultz, one of 14 members of the Sapphires.
"That's pretty much what gets us going is it's the people we support, our sisters and our actual brothers that are out there riding for the same cause," Schultz said.
They're supporting six causes this year including a benefit run for 37-year-old Tatiana Saunders of Neenah.
"I feel grateful," Saunders said. "And I keep wondering why me?"
Saunders served nearly five years in the U.S. Army. A year of that time, she was in a war zone in Iraq.
