The Prairie Winds Ladies' Motorcycle Club has taken over the organization of the annual local motorcycle ride for Ronald McDonald House.
A different organization, the Prairie Riders, had spearheaded the ride for many years. But the Prairie Riders disbanded a few years ago, so local motorcycle enthusiasts Paul and Pam Currie organized the ride.
Now the Prairie Winds have stepped up to run this year's event, and while the Prairie Winds is a women's motorcycle outfit, Pam Currie said the Ronald McDonald House Ride will be open to everyone.
“The Prairie Winds like being involved in the community, we like to do things that help other people, and the Ronald McDonald House in Saskatoon is a valuable asset to the province of Saskatchewan, so it was just a natural thing that the Prairie Winds would want to take this on to help the community.”
The Prairie Winds aren't strangers to fundraising, either. They have held a fundraising motorcycle ride each year for more than a decade.
This year's ride for Ronald McDonald House will be happening on Sunday, September 7. Registration will begin at 2 p.m. and participants will depart an hour later. They will ride up to Arcola and then to Stoughton for a beef on a bun supper and door prizes.
Then they will return to Estevan.
