Breast Cancer Bike Run September 12th
Every year Bikers converge on the Checkerboard Bar to raise money and awareness for Breast Cancer.
This year the Bikers for Boobs event will happen. The Bikers said it was important to do what they could to make it happen this year in spite of the COVID-19 restrictions. They aren't going to break the rules, they are going to honor the rules and mandates while still pulling off the bike run and raise money for St. Luke's Breast Cancer Department and for Essentia Health.
There will be a raffle at the Checkerboard and are available now at Sutherland's CBD. They will be giving away TV, Browning Bold Action with Scope, and Polaris 570 Sportsman.
The money goes to cover travel expenses, lodging, meals, childcare, and so many other costs that people don't realize the family has to cover in order to support their loved ones while they fight cancer.
Saturday, September 12th is when registration will begin at 9 am and end at 11:30 am at Morgan’s Checkerboard Bar 3957 S. Cty Road E South Range, WI. The kickstands will be up at noon and take off on the run. Registration is $25 per single person and $40 per couple to be in the event. The organizers are saying that the Kro Bar Bus will be available.
This will be the first year an ATV/UTV route is added for those who want to use it. There is camping available on site. When everyone gets back to the Checkerboard later that night there will be all sorts of events to raise money and live music will being at 7 pm by Neptune Rising.
The Bike Run begins at noon and everyone is encouraged to bring masks, be smart and socially distance, and of course, everything is scheduled to be outside in order to make it easier to drink and have a bite to eat.
