Donations benefit cancer patients

 


A big thank to the White Thunder Riders of Hurley for the donation of $500 in gas cards to the Road to Recovery.

These gas cards help our volunteer drivers take cancer patients to their treatments, no matter where they have to go — from Aspirus Grand View, to Marquette, to Mayo Clinic in Rochester, Minn.

We have been so lucky with the people and organizations in the area that have kept us supplied with gas cards for the past four years that I have been coordinator of the program.

Special thanks also to Mary Beth, a member of the White Thunder Riders, who rode a snowmobile in the Vintage Grass Drags at the Iron County Fairgrounds in August wearing a bikini to help raise $1,500 for area charities.

Some of the money raised went to the health department’s Women’s Wellness Night to help women get their mammograms.

The White Thunder Riders also donated $200 to Judy’s Ride to help Judy Valenti’s fight against cancer.
