Breast Cancer Charity Ride to Support Good Samaritan

Join the fun at the 5th annual Breast Cancer Charity Ride through Robinson, Illinois and portions of southern Indiana. The Breast Cancer Charity Ride is a five-stop, daylong motorcycle ride in support of breast cancer awareness.

“This amazing group of individuals have continuously came together and raised funds for our breast cancer patients,” stated Rob McLin, President and CEO of Good Samaritan. “Every year they try to make their event bigger and better and we are extremely fortunate to receive these donations.”

Kathy Arnold, a breast cancer survivor and Good Samaritan Breast Care Center patient understands the importance of this event. “This is our 5th annual ride and it feels great that we have been doing this for 5 years and are still getting the support from our local community and from the Vincennes area,” stated Arnold. “It warms my heart to know there are people willing to still sponsor us, donate prizes and time so our event can continue to raise money for the Breast Care Center and all the breast cancer patients. In the past 4 years, we have raised over $30,000.00 for the Think Pink Charity, something our Committee is very proud of because it does take a lot of time, energy and commitment to do this, but we also know that even if we just raise one dollar it's a dollar we didn't have for this fight and every dollar counts!”

The ride will begin in Robinson, Illinois at 9 a.m. (CT) on October 10 in the Mach One Parking Lot. Riders can also start from the Good Samaritan Breast Care Center in Vincennes, Indiana at 11 a.m. (ET). The remaining stops will be made in Shoals, Jasper and Monroe City. The ride will end back in Robinson, Illinois at the City Park where a 50/50 drawing will be held. Riders are encouraged to wear pink, but no club colors are allowed.

There is a $15 per rider registration fee. For more information, questions or to pre-register, riders can call Kathy at 618-544-4433 or Carla at 618-553-5498.
