Vroom! Vroom! “The Cruise” is Coming to Preston!

Do you like motorcycles? Do you like lots of motorcycles that are all shapes, sizes, models, and colors? That’s good, because on Sunday, July 28, approximately 1,600 motorcycles will roll into Preston, Minn. during the 13th Annual Ronald McDonald House Charity Ride called “The Cruise.”

“The Cruise” has earned the reputation as the largest motorcycle benefit in the area. Last year 1,240 riders raised over $132,000 to provide comfort, care, and hope to families seeking medical care for their children in Rochester. To date, over 12,250 riders and sponsors have donated their time and over $1 million toward this effort, touching the lives of over 15,000 families who call the Ronald McDonald House their “home away from home” while seeking treatment.

Preston is the last stop on the ride before the bikers head back to their starting point in Rochester. The motorcycles are expected to arrive in Preston between 2 – 4pm and will park around the Courthouse Square. Games and food vendors will also be on site. Area residents are encouraged to come out and welcome the bikers to Preston and show support for this worthy cause.

There are several ways individuals and businesses can donate to this year’s benefit: (1) Donate a silent auction item with a retail value of $100 or greater (2) Donate gift certificates, gift cards, and business coupons to be used as drawing door prizes to thank committed riders (3) Drop off a monetary donation for the Ronald McDonald House at the Welcome Table located on the north side of the courthouse on July 28. Contact Preston City Hall 507-765-2153 with further questions.
