Motorcycle activities: The 3rd Annual Ride-On 4 Carrie Charity Poker Run will take place Saturday, September 10th, 2016. The first 2 years of this run have proven themselves with incredible turnouts, tons of fun and huge amounts of money raised! We want to add your support this year to make the 3rd even greater!
As you've noticed, we've moved the event from a spring run into the fall. We're real excited about both this move and our decision to move the headquarters to our new starting and final stop at Mama G's in Maple Grove.
We look forward to making Mama G's and the 2nd Saturday in September a tradition that everyone looks forward to each and every year.
The day’s events start at 9am with registration that include a fantastic free breakfast (catered by Maynard's) served at Mama G's, our 120+ mile poker run, shirt and merchandise sales, all day raffle and live auction, all followed with food and live music at MamaG's! As always ~ We all Ride-On this day for an especially fantastic cause and in memory of an especially fantastic woman.
The RO4C was started in 2014 as a benefit in honor of Carrie Britton Stenson-Hansen, who lost her courageous battle with ovarian cancer in February of 2013. She was diagnosed in January of 2012 and battled it fiercely for nearly 14 months, never losing her bright spirit and strength along her journey. Carrie’s husband, Troy, created this event to celebrate all that they treasured together: family, friends, helping others, and of course ~ riding motorcycles.
The Ride-On 4 Carrie welcomes Lee Zeller as our '16 beneficiary!
Lee and his girlfriend Kris Winkelman-Olson have ridden with us on the RO4C run our first 2 years and have been great supporters. Medical setbacks this year have found Lee in need of our help...
Lee was diagnosed with stage 4 colon cancer in February, 2013. His cancer has slowly metastasized to his lungs, liver, lymph nodes and now beyond. The doctor says he is treatable as long as he can tolerate chemo, but unfortunately not curable ~ Despite losing his hair (again) and multiple allergic reactions to the drugs, Lee has been fighting through intense chemotherapy every two weeks. Having just had his 75th treatment recently, he will continue to get chemo as long as it keeps the cancer at bay. Lee's a fighter and understands that every day is a gift as he still continues to work, even when he's at his worst, as medical bills continue to come in...
Please join us to support the RO4C this year as we stand with Lee!
