Milestone motorcycle ride supports worthy cause

The 20th edition of the Ride for Ronald McDonald House (RMH) proved to be a success.

The Prairie Winds women’s motorcycle club organized the event, which was held on Sunday afternoon. A total of 90 people registered for the ride and raised $5,700 through registration fees, raffle ticket sales and individual/corporate donations.

Participants met up at the Estevan McDonalds, and rode through Lampman and Arcola before reaching Stoughton’s Crossroads Inn, where they enjoyed a beef on a bun meal, door prizes and socializing. Then they returned to Estevan.

Proceeds will be directed to the RMH in Saskatoon, which provides accommodations to families with a child seeking medical treatment. The RMH has been the beneficiary of the ride since the ride’s inception in 1999, when it was organized by the Prairie Riders motorcycle club.

Kelly Humphrey from RMH spoke to the motorcyclists before they embarked on their ride, and she thanked them for their support over the years. She also explained to them how the RMH has been able to help families from across Saskatchewan through the support of events like the Ride for Ronald McDonald House.
