Ride With a Buddy - Driver Registration
Mon, July 17, 2017, 4:30 PM – 8:00 PM CDT
GOAL: To enable survivors of life-limiting illnesses and/or their family members to ride on the back of a motorcycle or in a classic or collectable car, so they may experience a single hour of smiles and forget the challenges they face daily.
NOTE: A separate registration form is needed for EACH driver and survivor. Fill out the registration forms to participate.
Ride With a Buddy is a motorcycle and classic car ride. The ride has drivers 'buddy up' with survivors and their family members who have faced, or are facing, the challenges of Alzheimer's, cancer, diabetes, heart disease or another life-limiting illnes. The purpose is to bring people from neighboring communities together to help these individuals forget, for a moment in time, the challeges they face on a daily basis, and to raise funds for local heatlhcare organizations and programs that serve those same people.
Motorcycles and cars form a group and cruise appoximately 30 miles through the beautiful rolling hills of southern Wisconsin. Just before re-entering the Fair Park, the lead bike will pick up a portable torch that will be lit with the ‘Flame of Hope.’ Participants of the Ride will escort the flame onto the grounds. After the motorcycles and cars have all entered the park, the ‘Flame of Hope’ will be passed from survivor to survivor. The final survivor lights a huge basin. This basin is lite with the Flame of Hope and that light becomes our beacon on Hope throughout the evening activities.
"Ride WIth a Buddy" is a part of Hope Fest which runs through noon the next day. Additional acitivites include - The Walk, live music, a Fish Fry (catered by Capn's Catering), beer garden, 50/50 raffles, brats and hamburgers, kids games, skydivers, Night Light Bicycle Ride, Dirty Fit, Kids Fit, Toilet Bowl Races, Breakfast Bonanza and much more.
