You are invited to participate in the annual Ride for Wishes fundraiser this Saturday. The event is a benefit for the Make-A-Wish Foundation, which has granted more than 10,000 wishes to children in Illinois since 1985. The Make-A-Wish Foundation fulfills wishes for children with life-threatening medical conditions.
The 70-mile ride begins at Ted’s Motorcycle World in Alton and will end at the Alton-Wood River Sportsmen’s Club in Godfrey. Event volunteer Tony Vatole tells The Big Z riders will enjoy a scenic trip through the region.
