Angel Ride succeeds

To the editor:

The seventh annual Angel Ride to Save the Ta Tas was a big huge on July 13 – 498 riders went on the ride, plus many other showed up to participated in the in the fun activities at Amigos

We would like to thank Mark and Crissann Campbell and the staff at Amigos for help hosting the Angel Ride this year: from letting us set up at bike nights, serving an awesome breakfast the morning of the ride to the delicious pork loin meal afterwards.

A special thanks to the bars that hosted our stops through the day, Rails Bar & Grill, Eagle Grove, Pickles Pub, Kamrar, Rungo’s, Stratford, Iron Saddle Saloon, Dayton and Ralph’s Tap, Moorland. They provided great service to many people that stopped there.

Thanks to Kathy Reimers at Personali-Tees in Humboldt for our shirt printing, Kaleidascope Gifts and Party Productions for selling shirts for us. (They are still selling shirts.)

A very big thanks to all the businesses and citizens that made donations this year and to all the people who attended our event. All of you are amazing. We also want to thank auctioneer, Curt Carlson, and DJ, Rusty McNeal, for helping out the day of the ride. Also Judi Johnson and the staff at 3 Eagles Communication for helping us promote the ride every chance they could. It takes so many people to make an event like this work out and we couldn’t make it happen without your generosity.

To our special Angels, thank you for everything you help out with to make this event a success. Going out to get donations, planning and working the event. Appreciate each and every one of you. It isn’t easy with our busy lives to put on a big event like this and it wouldn’t be possible without your help.

Watch for details on our third annual Laps for Life event at the Crossroads Mall in October, date has not been set yet.

We will be turning over the money that was raised in October as that is Breast Cancer Awareness month. Every penny counts, every patient matters.

Thank you again to the public, and all those that participated in this event, it does take a village to make things like this happen and we are so happy that everyone is willing to help this village out. Remember: early detection saves lives. Please join us on Facebook: Angel Ride to Save the Ta Tas.
