From Our Blog:
Friends of the Mike and Marlene Seerup family are organizing the 3rd Annual Donate Life Motorcycle Run on Saturday, August 24, in memory of Marlene’s daughter, Kaitlyn Berg. All are invited to participate, with or without a motorcycle. The motorcycle run will leave from the Clover Leaf Bar and Grill, in Newport at 11 a.m. with check-in beginning at 9:30 a.m. Riders will return to the Clover Leaf about 5 p.m. for a pig roast, raffles and a live auction presented by Greg Ryken.
The cost is $10 per rider. Proceeds from the event will go to LifeSource, to further awareness of the importance of organ donation. Four-year-old Kaitlyn died in an automobile accident in 2001. Her heart, liver and kidneys saved the lives of three children, two younger than Kaitlyn.
For details or to donate items or services for the auction, call Mike at 651.769.7718 or Marlene at 651.769.7194. In its first year, more than 80 bikes and 160 riders took part in the run, according to Jim Penningroth, a friend of the family who is helping organize the ride.
