My Daddy, John Morton, was an avid motorcycle rider who could often be heard and seen riding his Indian Chieftain through southwest Oklahoma with the #CWCrew. The Tillman County Food Bank provides services that he felt passionate about supporting.
We chose March because by then most of the holiday donations received at the food bank have been depleted, making it difficult for them to service the hungry. And March 27th was Daddy's birthday.
The route chosen for the ride was Daddy's favorite route through southwest Oklahoma which includes The Wildlife Refuge and other rural scenic routes. All proceeds go directly to the Tillman County Food Bank. to assist them in continuing to service the hungry in southwest Oklahoma.
Our inaugural ride in 2020 found us having to postpone until June 6th due to the pandemic. Riders were ready to ride by then! We were honored to have 37 bikes and 5 cars with a total of 47 participants. Through their generosity we raised enough to provide 5,000 meals for the food bank.
The 2nd Annual ride was held March 27, 2021. We had 52 bikes and 6 cars with a total of 72 participants. We met our goal of providing 10,000 meals.
Our 3rd Annual Ride on March 26th, 2022, we had 39 bikes and 8 cars for a total of 73 participants with a goal of 20,000 meals. Their generosity provided 38,000 meals, which was nearly double our goal!
This is a family friendly ride open to ALLSTREET LEGAL vehicles.
We strongly encourage the community that isn't riding to join us for the afternoon cookout. You will have a great time hearing about the day's ride while enjoying a meal and winning door prizes!
Remember ALL STREET LEGAL Vehicles Welcome!!
See the fun...
Don't miss out!!!
