The Douglass Community Services Kids in Motion Program launched their “Ride For A Reason” Fundraiser Saturday, June 9 at the Hannibal Clinic’s Ride Cool Event.

In conjunction with promoting bicycle safety, this event will encourage kids to spend additional time this summer riding their bicycles, and actively recruiting sponsors to support them in their efforts to stay active and off their phones. Monetary pledges will be sought for minutes rode per participant over a two-week period, and 100 percent of all money raised will be donated to the Kids in Motion/Teens in Motion programs.

Prizes will be awarded in various categories, and everyone that registers will be entered into a drawing for a number of prize giveaways, with the largest giveaway being a chance to win a $100 Walmart gift card. Sponsors for this event include: The Hannibal Clinic, Refreshment Services Pepsi and the Hannibal Magazine.

Official registration forms are available at Douglass Community Services or by emailing kids@douglassonline.org. For more information, please contact Amy Vaughn at 573-221-3892 Ext. 246.
