We are joined on this special edition podcast by Nick Markovic, Laura King’s brother. The occasion is a charity ride that Laura and Nick participated in called the Ace Hardware Tour de Kids .. to benefit the Children’s Miracle Network.
Nick was on his 2007 Harley Davidson Ultra Classic
While Laura picked up a 2008 Street Glide
And just for fun … Laura preceeded the 730 mile round trip from Chicago to St. Louis by running a half marathon in Chicago through the remnants of Hurricane Ike!
This was the first year that motorcyclists joined the bicyclists who traditionally have participated in the Tour in years past. The bicyclists raised an incredible $500,000 on their ride, and for the first ever attempt at the event the twenty motorcyclists raised $50,000!
Information is still available to help Laura raise additional funds for the program via the attached Motorcycle Miracle Mission flyer.
For more great images of the event, visit our photo gallery Ace Children’s Miracle Network Ride for Kids.
Laura would like to recognized the leaders of the ACE CMN event including Joe Furlane, Jody Phillips and Jimmy Alexander who help coordinate and plan the event.
