RIDE FOR RESEARCH

A benefit ride called ‘Research for the Kids’ made a stop in Bellevue last Saturday afternoon, bringing with it about 200 motorcycles, many cars and trucks and two buses. While turnout for the annual event was down a bit due to weather, all seemed to have a good time at the various bars and breweries downtown. After the stop in Bellevue, the group headed to Happy’s Place in Dubuque for the big auction and raffle. The Research for the Kids Ride, which has been an annual event for over a decade, raises funds for research into childhood cancer and congenital heart defects.
