"Ride to Ride out Cancer" raises money to help cancer patients who are currently receiving treatment for any type of cancer.

The money helps offset the everyday financial burdens families go through by paying bills such as, mortgage or rent, utilities, phone, and medical.

We also maintain a food pantry and deliver directly to the patient in need. We succeed solely on the donations and participation of our supporters.

This event is "In Memory of Nathan Peebles" and "In Honor of Chief Rob Orkies" & All Cancer Patients.

Admission: Donation to the Cause

Entry Fees:

Car, Truck and Motorcycle Show: $20

Chili Cook Off: $10

In Memory of Banner and Origami Lantern: $35

The proceeds of this event will include a donation for an all inclusive playground in Hillview in honor of Jesse Schott, a donation to St. Jude Children's Research Hospital in memory of Nathan Peebles, and a donation in honor of Chief Rob Orkies.
