Ride For Ramps Event Will Feature Motorcycle, Bicycle Rides

OSWEGO, NY: On June 9, engines will rev and feet will move as bikers collect pledges and ride to support the ARISE Oswego County Ramp Program.

This Ramp Program uses community volunteers to design and build ramps free-of-charge for individuals with mobility difficulties who otherwise cannot afford this essential home modification. Proceeds from the event will be used to purchase construction materials to build ramps.

Motorcycle riders can check-in as early as 10 a.m.

The ride through the scenic Oswego County countryside will begin at 11 a.m.

The event also features a classic car show, a great chicken barbecue and events for kids and families.

New this year, youth and their families will also have the opportunity to ride for ramps around a special mile-long bicycle route.

The ARISE Oswego County Ramp Program is a local effort to improve our community. Materials are purchased locally, and area volunteers provide the design and construction. All the families who receive ramps live in Oswego County. This is a great opportunity to help friends and neighbors fully participate in our community.

Join ARISE for great food, great fun, and a great cause, as we Ride for Ramps. Call Jim Karasek at 342-4088 x 206 or check out rideforramps.org

ARISE & Ride for Ramps is sponsored by Woodchuck Saloon and Empower Federal Credit Union.
