Redwood City Police Activities League Presents “Give a PAL a Ride” Fundraising Motorcycle Ride
Redwood City, CA - April 24 , 2007 - The Redwood City Police Activities League (PAL) is proud to announce the 3 rd Annual Motorcycle Poker Run fundraiser - “Give a PAL a Ride” benefits youth in Redwood City by helping to fund PAL programs including the computer lab, karate and dance programs, after school tutoring, sports, and boxing programs. The motorcycle run will be held on Sunday, May 6th 2006, starting at the PAL community center, 3399 Bay Road. Registration begins at 9 am, and this scenic and fun police-escorted motorcycle ride starts 10:30 am after complementary coffee and donuts.
This is a great opportunity to ride along with police motorcycle officers through the scenic coast of San Mateo County, ending back in Redwood City at Redwood General Tires, 1630 Broadway, for a firefighter-style lunch. Up to 150-200 motorcycles are expected to participate on this great 100-mile ride that raises funds for PAL. For the $30 entry fee all participants receive morning coffee and donuts, a special Ride T-shirt, a Ride pin, and BBQ lunch – and the knowledge that they’ve done something great by helping our local PAL.
More information and advance registration is available by contacting Chris Rasmussen, PAL Executive Director, at 650-556-1650, extension 11.
This event is presented with the generous sponsorship of Redwood General Tire, Walschon Fire Protection, Loral Landscaping, Norcal Waste, Seaport Industries, John Plane Construction, Provident Credit Union, Grove Construction, Universal Development, Towne Ford, Wells Fargo Bank, Kohlweiss Auto Supply, Arlen Ness Motorcycles, and Ferrari Electricians.
