Riding for a cause: Voice of the Pirates remembers daughter

(Sept. 9, 2011)   —   The highways of eastern North Carolina will rumble Sept. 17 as nearly 100 motorcycles roll to raise money for a scholarship fund at East Carolina University.

Leading the way on their own Suzuki Boulevard cruiser will be the Voice of the Pirates, Jeff Charles, and his wife, Debby. The ride will benefit the Heather A. Purtee Nursing Scholarship, a fund named for their daughter, who died in a car crash 19 years ago while a nursing student at ECU.
