DescriptionWHO: Special Olympics Arizona, Chester’s Harley Davidson (Mesa)

WHAT: The 16th Annual Chester’s Torch Ride is taking place on Saturday, March 28 at the Chester’s Harley Davidson in Mesa, followed by a police-escorted ride along the 87 traveling north to Arizona Bike Week festivities at WestWorld of Scottsdale. The signature fundraiser hosted with Arizona Law Enforcement Torch Run helps support more than 16,000 athletes statewide through programs at Special Olympics Arizona.

The event creates an opportunity to raise funds and awareness through a fundraising portal, with 100 percent of the proceeds going to Special Olympics Arizona athletes. The goal set this year is $50,000.

Last year, Special Olympics athlete Chy Johnson was named the 2014 Torch Ride Queen and this year she will pass it off to the most inspirational athlete from a local delegation.

Riders of the event will received a commemorative pin and enjoy a pancake breakfast provided by Wal-Mart Stores Inc. at the start of the ride at Chester’s Harley Davidson in Mesa. At the completion of the ride, participants will receive free entry into Bike Week and a ticket to the Saturday night concert featuring Grammy Award-winning hard rock band, Stone Temple Pilots.
