From Fort Dodge, IA! I want to make others aware of the breast cancer ride that we have been working on. The money that is raised is targeted for uninsured services, such as wigs and scarves and for transportation to treatments. And Maybe just chat!

The Angels have been busy!
The weather outside has been amazing! Getting warmer, and the flowers have been blooming for a couple months now! Having the windows open is a plus as I can hear the motorcycles drive past the house! I just hope that when everyone is out on the road that they watch out for the bikes! Don't like to hear of any accidents!
WOW! The Angel Ride "Angels" have been busy! We are getting the new shirts and many other 'new' items to sell! Seems like we get more & more ideas from the people that we meet too!
We went out to the Crossroads Mall here in Ft Dodge, to sell things at the Women's Expo! Got a great place to set up, as when you walked into the front doors there was a 4' pink ribbon that could be seen a long ways away! It was a fun Saturday morning! The guys there were running the music gave us some good ideas, and one even wore a headband with pink breast cancer ribbons bouncing on top & a pink boa!! "Real Mean Do Wear PINK!"
Our helpers are out on the beaten path trying to get donations for our July 14th ride. So if you have any donations, please get a hold of a committee member!
In June we are going to be busy for the first couple weeks! Hope that some of you stop by these places to say HI!
June 2nd is the kick off to the FRONTIERS DAY PARADE here in Dodge! We will be in the parade, and some of the 'Angels' will be selling baked goods (fruit too) at the parade at Sneakers Pub on central! They will also be selling shirts too!
FRIDAY June 8th there is going to be a "GARAGE SALE" at Community Tap 2026 5th Ave So Ft Dodge noon to dark! With the band Salty View playing! If anyone wants to donate "GOOD" used items for the garage sale please contact Sally or Mycheal at Community 515-955-3132
ALSO on June 8th some of the Angels will be out to Mineral City Speedway 6-?? selling shirts and items for the kids (Pink of course!) Should have some kid shirts in to sell too!
Then we wake up to Saturday June 9th at KUM & GO 115 No 22nd St in Ft Dodge, a friend of mine set up a car wash with all proceeds going to the Angel Ride!
We have such awesome people out there wanting to help this cause! And so many people need these funds too! So we are so happy to have these chances to do 'new' and exciting events!
One last thing before I sign off for the night, we are also doing a "CHAIRS FOR CHARITY". A couple years ago we did the "Bras for the Cause" this year I am asking people to make "Chairs" they can be theme chairs such as football teams, wild life, school chairs, what ever they come up with, THE ONLY THING IS... I want each chair to have a pink ribbon on it some where some how! And please everyone that is making a chair, please sign the bottom of the chair so we know who it is from, or sign the top, just want you to be known for your chair! Right now we have kids chairs, small tables, and regular chairs being made! Let your ideas go wild!! When you get the chairs painted, please upload your picture to the ANGEL RIDE TO SAVE THE TATAS ~~FACEBOOK PAGE!!! This way we can let others see how they look!
We will be placing a chair at each of the stops to have them raffle off the chair, or how ever they want to do it! With all the funds coming back for the Angel Ride cause! I know I can't wait to see how they all turn out!
Thanks again for supporting the Angel Ride... We can't do it without your help!

I am a person that is willing to help people out when I can! There is no better feeling in life than to help someone in need, or to do a good deed! We have 3 boys & enjoy doing things with them! I love to ride behind my hubby on his Heritage Softtail! To experience the open feeling of the road is so awesome! It's like seeing the world from a different angle!
Enjoying life is what it is all about!
