This year's ride is in the palnning stages and will be ready to roll on July 30th. We have tons of door prizes, ride stop prizes, live auction items and many tables of silent auction items. You might even win a 2011 Harley-Davidson Superlow Sporster! Every registered rider has an equal chance to win!
As in past years, this year's ride will consist of a 100-plus mile motorcycle ride with planned stops along the way. The ride starts at La Crosse Area Harley-Davidson, led off by founder of the ride, John Haverty with his 14-year-old son Joey on back who is the reason the Thunder Ride exists. The ride will end at the South Side Oktoberfest grounds in La Crosse.
As in past years, the Thunder Ride to Cure Diabetes will continue their relationship with Franciscan Skemp Healthcare and Gundersen Lutheran Medical Center to care for children in the Coulee Region who have a need for financial assistance in managing the high cost of diabetes. The money will be distributed by the Medical Foundation of each healthcare facility through a grant application process.
Throughout the day we will be picking qualifiying tickets to win our 2011 Harley-Davidson Superlow Sportster. If you register to ride or have purchased tickets for the bike, you are in it to win it right up until the last minute!!! You do not need to be present to win.
Tickets to win the bike can be purchased at
La Crosse Area Harley-Davidson and at the
SS Fest Grounds on the day of the ride.
