Martin Resendez has established a solid reputation as one of the most dynamic leaders in the Hispanic biker community. For the past nine years Martin has been spearheading some of the most successful Harley bike runs in Southern California.
Martin and his organization, Rolling Deep 4 Charities, launched the Los Angeles Mission Run. He and 350 of his fellow riders were successful in delivering over 24,000 pounds of clothing, blankets, beanies and jackets to the LA Mission in downtown Los Angeles. The spirited theme was, “Let’s Help Keep LA Warm.” Last year at the annual Christmas Ramona Gardens Toy Run, Martin and approximately 300 bikers were able to donate hundreds of toys, bicycles, coloring books and clothing to the underprivileged children that reside in the Ramona Gardens Los Angeles Projects.
Martin and his organization operate mainly in the U.S., but one of the more popular Harley bike runs takes them across the border to Rosarito Beach, Mexico. Last year they were successful in delivering more than six truckloads of school supplies, hygiene products, bicycles, toys, clothing and even a Taco truck from Los Angeles to feed all the children in attendance. Additionally, the charity hired an Ice Cream truck for the kids to enjoy. They were assisted in their efforts by DIF (Desarrollo Integral de la Familia) A Mexican Government Agency that works primarily with orphanages and other charitable events.
In 2011, Martin was formally recognized for his organization’s efforts and received a government pin from the Mayor’s Office that is only presented to City Officials.
