Ride the Wild donates almost $2,000 to local Shriner’s

Local News

A Sunday ride through Erie County now means more money for children.

Today, the proceeds from the “Ride the Wild” biking event were presented to the Shriner’s Children’s Hospital.  More than $1900 was raised through the motorcycle ride around the Waterford area.

Sponsored by Bison Beer, it’s just the kind of event the hospital needs to keep helping children, regardless of the family’s ability to pay.  “Our mission here,” explains Michael Widrig of Shriner’s Hospital, “is to provide the highest quality of care and we do so regardless of the family’s ability to pay so it’s donations like this that keeps us going and help us to be able to fulfill that mission”.

This is the second year that money has been raised through the “Ride the Wild” event.
