Cruisin for Kidz taking off Sept. 29Published 12:05pm Tuesday, September 11, 2012
The second annual Cruisin for Kidz Motorcycle Ride is revving up, and Children’s Harbor officials hope bikers are ready to pop those kick-stands up and hit the road to support illness camps.
“We’re trying to raise awareness for Children’s Harbor so people know that we’re here,” said Tammy Jackson, director of community relations for Children’s Harbor.
The Sept. 29 motorcycle ride costs $50 per bike, and Jackson said the proceeds will go to support the 22 different illness camps to which Children’s Harbor donates facilities.
“We donate about 35 weeks of camp a year,” Jackson said. “This money will go toward helping with the programs.”
Day-of registration for the ride will be from 8–10 a.m. Those interested can also pre-register at childrensharbor.com, which will ensure the registrant a T-shirt in the right size.
In addition to a T-shirt, a meal will be provided after the 150-mile ride. The ride begins and ends at Children’s Harbor.
“One thing that makes it so nice is that we have state trooper escort,” Jackson said. The escort will accompany the group on its ride north around Harpersville, Jackson said.
An additional rider on the motorcycle is free, but an additional T-shirt is $15, Jackson said.
Sponsoring the ride are Russell Medical Center, Thames Construction, Crosby-Drinkard Group, Central Alabama Roofing, Hirn Family Foundation and Walmart.
