Bikers for Babies Rally
Sept. 21, 2014, Ottawa Chapter participated in March of Dimes' Bikers for Babies Rally to help raise money for life saving medical research, health education for moms-to-be, support for families in newborn intensive care (NICU) and other programs in local communities.
The ride began at the Kansas Speedway in Kansas City and wound a 100 miles through Douglas, Wyandotte and Leavenworth counties, ending back at the Kansas Speedway. An estimated 5,000 bikes participated in the ride.
We enjoyed the ride through the country side and seeing families, many with young children lining the roadsides, with signs and balloons waving and cheering the bikers on. I was amazed to see how many people March of Dimes has supported in the local area--so many times we give to a charity and never see the results or the people it helps.
