Thunder Ride 2013 Set for Saturday

VERMILION COUNTY -- Thunder Ride 2013 registration is underway and folks will be cruising through Vermilion County to raise money for homeless veterans this weekend.

The Midwest Veterans Association, with the help of sponsors, is hosting the event.

Last year three hundred people signed up, raising eighteen thousand dollars, and organizers hope to beat that number this year.

Roger Gutterridge is a sponsor from House of Bikes in Danville and says, "The ride will leave north out of here and go the a VFW in Hoopeston, then it will continue on to a VFW in Attica, then continue on the the VFw in Covington, then around to the American Legion in Georgetown and it'll end up at the Vermilion county airport in Danville."

Food and entertainment will be available at the Vermilion County Airport and folks are invited to attend even if they don't plan to ride.

Admission is five dollars at the airport.

Drivers can pay fifteen dollars to participate and it is ten dollars for passengers.
