"Cruisin' For The Heart", is a Quad-State benefit run, (Illinois, Indiana, Iowa & Wisconsin), and was started in 2010 by the Kenosha Moose Riders. Every year since, it is getting bigger not only by lodge, but also by Moose member participation. This event's growth has expanded past our four States, as other US States have inquired, even Ontario Canada asked for info as to how to start their own!
This is a benefit Run that starts at the "Blessing of the Bikes", (3rd weekend of May), and ends at the "End of Ride Party", (4th weekend of September). All profits from this event will, be donated to Mooseheart.
The objective is to have as many Moose Lodges participate as possible. Each participant that has purchased the benefit run booklet at the cost of $10/booklet, (limit 2 booklets per person), will then attempt to visit as many of the listed lodges over the summer months. This is open to all Moose members, qualified guests, and it's open to all types of vehicles, not only motorcycles.
Your 2017 host for the Benefit run is, the McHenry Moose Riders, and the Booklets will be available for purchase at the "Blessing of the Bikes"at Mooseheart. Also you may stop by the McHenry Moose Lodge. 3535 N. Richmond Road, Johnsburg, Illinois.
