Tom Hunter has a big heart and a big love for Harleys.
The almost-70-year-old Ocean Isle Beach resident recently left Brunswick County for Las Vegas. He won’t be there to spend money; he’s there to raise it.
During the next week or so Hunter will join other motorcycle enthusiasts on a 6,000-mile journey to New York. Along the way the Hope Harbor Home board member wants to raise funds for Hope Harbor.
Hope Harbor is a domestic violence shelter here in Brunswick County that helps women and children. It’s a fitting tribute for Hunter, a Marine Corps veteran who is a retired detective from the Brunswick County Sheriff’s Office.
Hunter is full of energy and is looking forward to his cross-country trip. It’s an item he’s anxious to check off his bucket list while doing something for a good cause.
You can follow Hunter on his journey online at www.hokaheychallenge.com. Cheer him on, and if you can, make a donation in his honor to Hope Harbor Home. See a story on page 1A today to find out how you can help.
