The second annual Motorcycle Ride for Habitat for Humanity is ready to roll on Sunday, May 25.
Registration – on-site only – will take place at 11:30 a.m. at the Depot Express, 104 Broadway, Alexandria.
Participants are invited to arrive early to have lunch at the Depot, enjoy getting to know other riders or take in the sight of vintage boats cruising the shores of Lake Agnes.
The ride will leave the Depot at 1 p.m. and tour around the chain of lakes. At 2 p.m., the ride will return to the Depot where motorcycle fun and games will take place and 57 Chevy will provide family friendly entertainment through the evening.
Participants are asked to make a suggested donation of $20 per bike. The first 100 riders to register that day will receive a free T-shirt.
The purpose of the event is to raise awareness and funds for Habitat for Humanity of Douglas County, a non-profit Christian housing ministry dedicated to building decent, affordable housing in partnership with those in need.
Since 1997, Habitat for Humanity of Douglas County has worked with 18 families to build homes. Families are selected according to established criteria: need for housing, ability to partner, and ability to pay.
Homeowners purchase the homes from Habitat with no-profit, zero-interest mortgages. Tax-deductible donations of money, land and materials are provided by individuals, organizations, churches, foundations and businesses.
