Bikers raise money for Riley, take part in Miracle Ride

HANCOCK COUNTY — The central Indiana chapter of the Southern Cruisers Riding Club has banded together with riders across the country to raise money for the Riley Hospital for Children.

The Southern Cruisers No. 471, which comprises riders from Greenfield, New Castle, Pendleton, Anderson, Muncie, Noblesville, Fishers and other communities, has already raised more than $5,000 for the Indianapolis children’s hospital through a multi-chapter fundraising drive leading up to Saturday’s 25th annual Miracle Ride.

The Miracle Ride is Indiana’s largest and longest running motorcycle charity event, having raised nearly $6 million for Riley Hospital for Children since its inception in 1994. The 2017 Miracle Ride should once again be a fun, family-friendly event, to raise money to help kids and their families cope with serious diseases and injuries.

Not only is the Miracle Ride for Riley Indiana’s largest motorcycle charity event, it is one of the largest fundraising biker events in the entire country. It brings together thousands of bikers from not just Central Indiana, but from across the country.

The Southern Cruisers Riding Club is the largest non-brand-specific riding club in the world, with more than 34,000 members worldwide, throughout the US, Canada, Europe, Asia and Australia.
