2023 Kellianne Burke Memorial Ride

Thank you for making the 2nd Annual Kellianne Burke Memorial Ride a Success!

On Saturday, June 24, 2023, more than 60 people joined us at the Freetown VFW to remember and honor the life of Kellianne Burke. Despite the rain, the Iron Order Motorcycle Club and Burke Family raised nearly $9,000 to support The Arc. The event featured live music by Leslie Gage and Friends, a 50/50 raffle, unique raffle prizes including a trip to Panama, food, and lots of fun. Thank you for joining us! We'll see you next year. 

Kellianne Burke

On 10/26/21, Kellianne tragically and unexpectedly passed away at her group home in Randolph. Kellianne was born with Down Syndrome and had health issues throughout her life. She defied the odds by living to the age of 33. Kellianne loved lively music and movies and always lived life to the fullest. She also benefitted greatly from the services that she received from The Arc.
