The Ride is brought to you by The Bad to the Bone Riders of Rockdale will take place this year on Saturday June 13th, 2020. The Ranch on 415 W. Hwy 79 Rockdale, Texas 76567 will host the motorcycle Ride.
The annual motorcycle ride benefits The M.A.R.C. (Milam Adult Resource Center) of Milam County. It is located here in Rockdale Texas. M.A.R.C. serves all Milam County Adult Residents with Physical and Learning Disabilities.
Next, the M.A.R.C. is a 501C3 Organization (Non-Profit Organization) that depends on this fundraiser to be a major resource to keep serving the consumers that it does. M.A.R.C. teaches these consumers valuable life skills that most people take for granted in day to day life. In the 18 year history of The M.A.R.C. RIDE it has donated 100% of the proceeds from these fundraisers/rides to the M.A.R.C. Over the years there has been a little over $315,000.00 through the years.
