While many folks were heading to the Peninsula to celebrate the 42nd Annual Soldotna Progress Days, bikers from around Alaska were heading to the Peninsula to participate in the 2nd Annual Live Ride for MDA.
According to Linda Sargent, service writer/accountant, at Kenai Peninsula Harley Davidson, the event hopes to raise some $35,000 on behalf of the Muscular Dystrophy Association for instate use. A traditional HOG event, riders of all kinds of machines participate in the fun fundraising ride, "We don't care what you ride, it can be scooter or any kind of motor bike, we need riders to make the money for MDA," said Sargent.
The Live Ride packet cost $30.00 to participate in the event, but as an incentive for those riders who raised or contributed $100 they got a chance at winning a Harley 883 Sportster, "And those who raised $1,000 got 10 chances," added Sargent. Nationally, in celebration of Harley Davidson 100th Anniversary this fall, Harley hopes to raise some $5,000,000 million dollars for the fight against Muscular Dystrophy with the Anniversary Live Rides, Sargent said.
