FALL RIVER – Saint Vincent’s Services will hold its 18th Annual Motorcycle Run and Raffle presented by Preferred Concrete Corp. on a new date, Sunday, September 17, from 9:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. Saint Vincent’s Services anticipates a larger crowd due to the change in date of the 45-mile Run.

“We are excited to welcome everyone out this fall for our annual motorcycle run. Everyone will enjoy the open roads, sweeping lake views and spectacular scenery,” said Katie Dawkins, Director of Donor Relations and Fundraising.

The signature event will start rain or shine at 2425 Highland Avenue in Fall River with kick-stands up promptly at 10:00 a.m.

The Massachusetts State Police will escort riders along the scenic ride as they travel through the back roads of Fall River, Assonet, Berkley, Lakeville, and Somerset and end at the Fall River Elks Lodge on North Main Street. With expected cooler weather and less humid conditions in September, this ride provides a more comfortable ride with breath-taking lake views and fewer delays for participants due to road closures and competing charity runs, etc.

Kathryn Dow, chair of the Motorcycle Run’s Committee, is excited to see and welcome attendees. “While this is a Bike Run, people need not have a motorcycle to participate. There will be many opportunities at the Elks for everyone to participate and enjoy the day with us while supporting the Mission of Saint Vincent’s,” she said.

Tickets for riders, passengers, and attendees are available on Saint Vincent’s Services website (www.SaintVincentsServices.org) or can be purchased on the morning of the Bike Run. To donate a raffle item, please contact Katie Dawkins, Director of Donor Relations and Fundraising, at 508-235-3228 or email kdawkins@saintvincentsservices.org.
