The Race for the Cure may be over, but it's now time for the first ever Texarkana "Ride for the Cure" to benefit the Komen Texarkana Foundation.This Saturday, Oct. 27, riders from all over the area will come together to raise money to join in the fight against breast cancer. The ride will begin at Whiskey River Harley Davidson. Registration begins at 8 a.m. and kickstands up around 9 a.m. and will end at Whiskey River Harley Davidson at 1 p.m. with riders enjoying lunch provided by Pizza Hut. The Clarion Hotel La Crosse and Pizza Hut have donated funds for the purchase of t-shirts for all participants to wear which include the signature “pink” color that signifies support for the breast cancer research.

The purpose is to have a great ride for an important cause and actually raise money that will go directly to a credible organization like Komen Texarkana. Funds raised will be used in our community. This event is sure to create memories, experiences and friendships to last.

Thanks to Whisker River Harley Davidson and the local HOG Chapter, The Clarion Hotel La Crosse, and Pizza Hut, for their support and for making this event possible which raises funds for a cause that affects so many people around us.

To join us for this highly anticipated event, donate a minimum of $20 per rider or $30 per couple at the registration. The donation will get you an Escorted Ride, T-Shirt, Goodies Bag, and Pizza Hut Pizza for Lunch.
