We Ride Because of Brandon

Hi Everyone,
Our Club is hosting our 5th Annual Because of Brandon ATV Charity Ride this Saturday, July 22nd at 9 am. We will meet at the Cole Lake Cabin Shelter Trailhead. Take County Road 30 to Old Manganese Road and turn left, follow the dirt road back to the Blue Fire number 19807.

Because of Brandon is a fund raiser in memory of Brandon Houge, a young man from Ironton, who passed away from complications of Juvenile Diabetes. All proceeds provide financial assistance to area residents with type 1 diabetes. I have invited Crow Wing County Commissioner, Doug Houge, and Representatives from the Cuyuna Regional Medical Center to speak.

Guided rides will leave at 10 am to the area trails and our Club will provide a free lunch at 1 pm, with fresh made sandwiches from Super One, chips, dessert tray with bars, cookies and bottled water.

Please come join us and raise some funds for this great cause. Bring a lawn chair, invite your friends and family. You don’t have to ride to make a donation.
