Sunrise ‘Ride & Shine’ Motorcycle Event Benefits Hurting Children
On Sunday, June 12, Sunrise Children’s Services will reprise an event that’s become a rallying point for motorcycle enthusiasts and others who want to help Kentucky’s abused and neglected children. Bikers, members of central Kentucky churches and Sunrise staff will join forces for the third annual Sunrise Children’s Services Ride & Shine rally.
Registration is set for 10 a.m. at Junction City First Baptist Church on Highway 127 in Danville, followed by an 11 a.m. worship service. The procession will begin its 120-mile journey at 12:30 p.m. and head for Sunrise’s Cumberland Adventure Program near Bronston before returning to Danville for a visit to the agency’s Woodlawn Center campus. There also will be a silent auction, with prizes ranging from gift baskets to a complimentary Lake Cumberland boat or cabin rental.
A registration fee of $20 includes a custom Ride & Shine t-shirt, with proceeds going to Sunrise. Participants also can register and make additional donations at www.rideandshine.org, or via giving kiosks at the church during onsite registration.
“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.”
