Northlander Riding Motorcycle 10,000 Miles for Sick Kids
DULUTH, Minn.-A former Douglas County sheriff and Northland Shriner is about to take the motorcycle ride of a lifetime, all with the goal of helping sick kids.
It’s all part a fundraiser, called the Hoka Hey Motorcycle Challenge which raises money for Shriner’s children’s hospitals throughout the country. During the event, 150 motorcyclists agree to ride a route that travels across the country going 10,000 miles in 13 days.
The Northland’s lone rider told us today, that it will be tough completing the ride, but he has no plans of quitting at any point.
“The hospital being my passion, it was natural, and I’m hoping that when I feel like quitting, I’m not going to quit, because I’m riding for kids,” said Dick Gudowski, a Northlander taking part in the fundraiser.
The ride begins Sunday in Oklahoma and motorcyclists will not be allowed to stay in hotels or use navigational devices on the route, which is mostly unknown to the riders at this time.
