Widows Sons of Indiana Raising Funds For Riley Hospital

The Widows Sons International Motorcycle Association has expanded over the last few years into eleven states in the U.S. and five countries outside the U.S. The club is open to Freemasons who ride a street or highway-legal motorcycle and are in good standing in their blue lodge.

The Widows Sons Masonic Riders of Indiana has been growing steadily in popularity. One of the regular events they participate in is the Miracle Ride for Riley Hospital For Children here in Indianapolis. This motorcycle ride takes place annually, and thousands of riders come from all points of the state to end up at the Riley Hospital for Children. In 2009, the Miracle Ride raised $365,000 with over 8,000 motorcycles participating.

Riley is consistently ranked among the top comprehensive pediatric hospitals in the nation. Funded solely by donations, Riley offers medical care to all Indiana children, regardless of a family's ability to pay.

This year's 17th annual Miracle Ride will take place on June 4-6th. Brother Aaron Taylor from Valparaiso has set up a sponsor page for the Miracle Ride in the name of Indiana Freemasons and the Widows Sons Masonic Riders of Indiana. Currently, they are the #2 sponsor of the event with just under $4,000 raised, and their goal is $5,000. If you feel so inclined, please take a moment to click here and make a donation to help them achieve their goal.

Wish I'd never sold my '83 Shadow.
