‘Tidman Strong Motorcycle Ride Fundraiser’ for corrections officer fighting for his life
by Spectrum News Staff at https://spectrumnews1.com
A motorcycle ride Sunday raised money to support a corrections officer who is now fighting for his life.
Over 500 bikers showed up for the “Tidman Strong Motorcycle Ride Fundraiser.”
The escorted ride began at the Department of Mental Health’s Hadley Building in Westborough and ended at the Fraternal Order of Eagles in Leominster.
Matthew Tidman was beaten by an inmate at MCI-Shirley in August.
His younger brother, Josh Tidman, organized the ride to help the officer’s family.
Josh Tidman said his brother is making progress, and the family is hoping for the best, but it’s a long road to recovery.
“A lot of people came about it, without question. I couldn’t have done this without my friends and fellow department of corrections officers who put this together,” Joshua Tidman said. “It’s unmeasured, the amount of love that’s here. The outpour of it is extremely supportive.”
The fundraiser also included live music, food, a car show and raffles.
