The 2013 event total of $1,089,791 was reached with the help of 1,300 motorcycle enthusiasts who participate in the nation’s largest charity motorcycle ride hosted by the Eastern Harley-Davidson Dealers Association.
It all started Saturday, May 4th at the Arts Quest Center at SteelStacks with live entertainment, silent auctions, raffles, and food and beverage vendors. Day one festivities were highlighted by an exclusive Joan Jett and The Blackhearts concert that evening, where the crowd rocked out to classic hits such as “I Love Rock ’N’ Roll,” and “I Hate Myself for Loving You.”
Ride for Life events carried on into Sunday, May 5, beginning with the parade of motorcycles. Willie G. and Nancy greeted the parade as it entered SteelStacks and was on hand for the closing remarks.
Mark your calendars for the 2014 event on May 3 & 4!
