Have you ever seen a pink bra strapped to the front of a motorcycle?
Join hundreds of bikers who will ride in the 4th annual Breast Damn Motorcycle Run on Saturday, Sept. 14. The event supports Treasured Chests, a local nonprofit organization, and its efforts to make a difference in the lives of people affected by breast cancer.
Bikers will roll out of Medina Entertainment Center at one o’clock with stops at Tootsies in Annandale, and the Red Lodge Grille in Waverly, before the scenic 106 mile ride wraps up at Lord Fletcher’s overlooking Lake Minnetonka.
Residents and business owners along the route are invited to get involved by hanging up bras and decorating their homes, barns and businesses. They are encouraged to step out and wave at the riders thundering by in support of those who are currently fighting breast cancer, to celebrate with those who beat it and to honor loved ones who lost their battles.
Register at www.treasuredchests.org/Events.html or on the day of the event at Medina Entertainment Center (500 Highway 55, Medina, MN 55340) starting at 10:30 a.m. Event highlights include a raffle, music, motorcycle wash, vendors, concessions and a special prize awarded for the best decorated motorcycle.
Local celebrities expected to attend the event include Brian Zepp of KQRS Radio, Donnie Smith of Donnie Smith Custom Cycles, former St. Paul Police Chief Bill Finney, Minnesota Vikings Cheerleaders and Minnesota Valkyrie LFL players.
