MONROEVILLE, Ala. (WALA) - Cyclists are getting ready to make a nearly 100-mile trek from Monroeville to Mobile for a good cause.
"Peddlin' for a Cure" bike ride is set for Friday, March 29, 2013, and benefits the American Cancer Society.
Fred Kelly, a radio show host, started the ride in 2004 as the result of a challenge. He told listeners if he raised a $1,000 for cancer research, he would make the ride from Monroeville to Alabama's Battleship Park. Since then, hundreds have joined Kelly on the ride.
There are several ways you can participate. Riders are leaving from the Monroe County Courthouse in Monroeville at 8:00 a.m. and will head all the way to the Ronald McDonald House on Springhill Avenue in Mobile.
You can also meet the riders at Tacky Jack's on the Causeway around 4:00 p.m. From there, bikers will receive a full police escort all the way through the Bankhead Tunnel to the Ronald McDonald House.
All the money raised will go to Monroeville's Relay for Life. To date, "Peddlin' for the Cure" has raised $924,000. Organizers are hoping to hit the $1,000,000 mark this year.
