Red Cross hosting motorcycle ride across the state Saturday

April 24, 2008

The American Red Cross will hold Ride for the Red, a statewide motorcycle rally to raise money for the Disaster Relief Fund.

The event will kick start Saturday at 6:30 a.m. in Salisbury, Md., and finish at Rocky Gap State Park near Cumberland, Md., at 4:30 p.m.

Participants can ride the entire route or just a segment.

A donation of $30 covers the entire day of riding, with all proceeds benefiting the American Red Cross in Maryland.

Registration and complete route information is available by visiting www.redcross-cmd.org or by calling 1-410-624-2037.

"We look for ways to connect people's natural desire to help others with something else they're passionate about," says Frank Miller, executive director of the Red Cross in Central Maryland.

"Personally, I've been a cyclist for more than 40 years and I've worked for the Red Cross for 37 years. I hope lots of people will join in a fun day!"
