Saturday, the 8th annual Pediatric Kidney Disease Benefit Bike Run takes place in Santa Clara. All motorcycles and vehicles are welcome!

The run travels the historic Pinos Altos loop through lower Mimbres, a beautiful ride through the Gila National Forest.  Registration is Saturday morning from 10-12 at the Brown Derby, 411 N. Bayard, in Santa Clara, NM.

There are several stops along the route and an end party at the Brown Derby where participants get a bbq dinner. Plus, a live DJ and live music from the Cuervo Conspiracy. I'll be emceeing the event and giving out lots of prizes including CASH!

All that for only $15 per person or $20 per couple.  Proceeds benefit:

young children who are suffering from Kidney Disease and are in dire need, as well as, undergoing treatment with Local or National Pediatric Nephrology Hospitals! 100% of the proceeds generated thru registration are donated to a selected pediatric beneficiary with Kidney Disease.

A special, discounted, room rate has been arranged for entrants at the Comfort Inn, mention "A Run 4 Hope" to get the discount.  (The Quality Inn is already completely booked so, make your reservation soon.)

I've done this before and it's an incredible experience, way more than just a ride.  For more details, click here.  Santa Clara is about 2 hours from El Paso, via I-10, near Silver City. For more info, call 575-571-7025 or click here.
