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!

St. John’s Childrens Hospital in Springfield Illinois was the first stop on the trip .. and then it was on to St. Louis to visit the Cardinal Glennon Children’s Medical Center.

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.

    wow Laura ! I am so happy for you and Philly opening the shop. You two are awesome and will do a wonderful job as always. Please plan on helping us again with the Relay for Life team this year. I can see from your recent pics that you are busy participating in other charity rides across the country. You have always been so generous with your time and resources at so many of our functions across Fayette county . Don't worry about Worrels comment a few days ago, you can't please everybody all the time. Keep up the good work !!!!!!!

    I'm not sure how you got my mailing address and sending me the post card, if it was taken from the Blackjacks computer, please take my name off. I still remember how I was treated by both of you, and when Phil was suppose to order a item for us, and simply did not order it as we soon found out. So please take me off of your mailing list, and do not call .

    Hello Lisa. I must say that Phil and I were really taken back by your posted comment this morning. I have known you from the BJ Riding Chapter since your membership date in July 2004, and cannot recall ever treating you badly. It is unfortunate that you have these feeling for both of us, and as you requested, I will remove your name from our mailing list. If you would like to have a conversation with me to discuss further, our phone is always open.
