About Thunder Ride

Established in 1999, the Thunder Ride organization was brought about with one idea: To help our community in any way we can.
Our young generations have seen an increased number of those affected by Juvenile Diabetes. Although we cannot stop it, we are doing everything we can to assist those in need. 

For children with this disease, living expenses for families can range from $500 to $5,000 a month alone. Day by day, these children require their necessary insulin shots, testing supplies, and local doctor visits that can reach up to three times a week.

Specifically during the golden year of 2023, our event raised a grand total of OVER $47,000, gartering a hefty amount of living assistance to those in need.


What can we do about it?

We’ve created a special event to introduce to the La Crosse region about once every year.

The Thunder Ride, where drivers from all around navigate through a marked route.


Just as the young who suffer through this ruthless disease, their route in life is difficult and their upbringing is rough. With this event, our aim is to symbolically experience that struggle via the roads and where they take us. We know we’re not alone now, even if it’s just for one day.

If you’re not into that type of thing, we also have our gathering where you and your family can come together for spectacular festivities like food and games to beat the heat with.
