Once again bikers ride for a good cause. The "1st Annual Poobunny Ride" will take place on October 12, 2013 in honor of Adele Mott, nicknamed Poobunny, who lost her battle with breast cancer in 2010. The fundraiser biker run was created by Adele's aunt, Dottie Dollson, who was looking for a way to memorialize her niece. Proceeds will benefit Albie Aware Breast Cancer Foundation which was created in 2004 to raise "money to assist people facing a breast cancer diagnosis" and to "educate the community on minimizing risks."
Albie Aware has many local supporters that create, organize and promote different events in order to help raise funds. The new "Poobunny Ride" event is anticipated to bring in around 200 bikers who will be revving up their engines to support the Albie cause as they take off from the motorcycle gear shop, Renegade Classics, located at 6758 Folsom Blvd., Sacramento, CA 95819.
The ride is open to all cyclists and autos. A small donation of $25 per person provides a ride pin, t-shirt (while supplies last), catered lunch and raffle ticket. Vendors selling wares and live blues-rock music by "Neckbone" will also enliven the event as riders reach their destination at Paschke Ranch in Woodland at 36047 County Road 25.
Registration for this event runs 8:00 to 10:30 a.m. at Renegade Classics with the run starting at 11:00 a.m. Pre-registration is available until Sept 30.at Eventbrite.com under the title 1st Annual Poobunny Ride. Being a cyclists or owning a bike isn't required to enjoy the fun, participate and support the cause.
