Haulin for Holly - Post Ride Update

 The Haulin for Holly fundraiser ride wasn't hurt at all by the reschedule due to weather. 65 riders and a total of over 100 people showed up for the event. The set of Tires that was donated by Cycleblend and raffled off raised $385 (we added $ 15 to make it an even $400).
All total $3,200 was raised by the generosity of East Tennessee Dirt bike riders.. Here are few pictures from the event.
