Bikers for Babies - 2 for 1 Ride May 31st

JONESBORO, AR (KAIT) - Melissa Gann with the March of Dimes says it's going to be an exciting weekend for bikers all over Arkansas.

"With our 2 for 1 poker run, I think it will really draw out the crowd. And these bikers are always willing to help out when we say we need to raise money for premature babies."

It's a Two for One Poker run Saturday, May 31st for the Bikers for Babies. The ride will start out from the Triple FM parking lot in downtown Jonesboro on the corner of Union, Monroe & Madison. Registration begins at 7:00 a.m. and the first bike leaves out at 8:00 a.m.

Bikers will have stops at several locations throughout Northeast Arkansas and will end up at Craighead Forest park for B-B-Q, live music, and door prizes. Registering for this race will pre-register you for the 14th Annual Bikers for Babies Ride in September.

Money raised in the event will go towards research and education for the March of Dimes and the fight to help Premature Babies.

For more information call the March of Dimes office at 870-932-0300.
