Bikers and doctors coming together for the Annual "Have a Heart" Ride for the Cardiovascular Center at the Medical College of Wisconsin
The Have a Heart motorcycle ride is celebrating 9 years of raising money to fight cardiovascular disease Saturday, June 10th.
The 70-mile motorcycle ride throughout southeastern Wisconsin begins and ends at Suburban Motors Harley-Davidson at 139 N. Main Street in Thiensville.
It is organized by the Milwaukee Suburban HOG Chapter and the dealership.
All proceeds benefit the Cardiovascular Research Center at the Medical College of Wisconsin.
There is a rest stop during the ride with a complimentary lunch when the riders get back with free entertainment and wonderful items up for auction.
"This is wonderful partnership," Dr. Ivor Benjamin of the Medical College tells CBS 58 News. "I want to say how much we appreciate what they're doing. This money will fund the next generation of researchers, doctors and care providers."
Heart disease is responsible for 1 in 3 deaths each year in Wisconsin.
"It's a good ride. Very scenic," says Have a Heart Ride Chairman Rick Baldry. "There will be an escort by our Hog road captains and police. 100% of the proceeds go to the cardiovascular center."
Check in starts at 10:30 a.m. with a rider welcome at 11:30 a.m. Sharp! Rain or shine.
