MASON CITY, IA - From one state to another, residents in Mason City are taking part in a ride for the North Iowa Make-a-Wish Foundation.
Riders from all across north Iowa meet in Mason City to help bring the joys of riding to those with life threatening conditions.
Those participating in the ride took the scenic routes throughout north Iowa ending back in Mason City where they were greeted with live entertainment.
For some organizers, they say this is the least they could do to help.
“First of all, awareness is a big thing. Obviously we can’t grant wishes without money. So we need to do both, we don’t want kids who qualify to fall through the cracks,” said Dennis Burke, Volunteer Organizer.
This ends a long week of events for the make-a-wish foundation intended on raising money for the group.
Those taking part in the event say it’s great being able to give these young people the experiences they’re looking for.
“We want to make sure that every kid that qualifies gets a wish, and then we have to pay for them. So it’s important that everybody gets involved and the bikers have always been great supporters of Make-A-Wish. This is our 10th anniversary and it’s just outstanding today,” said Burke.
