Mount Washington—Bikers with big chrome-plated hearts will offer hope to Kentucky’s abused and neglected kids when they saddle up for the Ride & Shine motorcycle rally June 12.
Sunrise Children’s Services hosts the third annual motorcycle rally that takes bikers through 120 miles of scenic central Kentucky.
“This has become one of our most eagerly anticipated outreach activities,” said Christi Moffett, Sunrise’s senior director of marketing.
“We’ve gotten tremendous responses the first two years, and we fully expect that the folks who have made past ‘Ride & Shines’ successful will turn out again to help benefit Kentucky’s most vulnerable children,” she added.
Registration is 10 a.m. at Junction City First Baptist Church in Danville, followed by an 11 a.m. worship service. The ride begins at 12:30 p.m. as bikers head for Sunrise’s Cumberland Adventure Program near Bronston before returning to Danville for a visit to the agency’s Woodlawn Center campus.
A registration fee of $20 includes a Ride & Shine T-shirt, with all proceeds going to Sunrise. Participants can register at . Additional donations can be made online or via giving kiosks at the church during onsite registration.
