(SALEM, Ore.) - On Saturday, August 21st die-hard bikers and weekend warriors from across the state will ride together to raise urgently needed funds to help every baby be born healthy. The 3rd annual Bikers for Babies will start at Harley-Davidson shops in Bend, Salem and Eugene at 9:00 a.m.

Individual riders as well as motorcycle clubs will hit the road to help support March of Dimes research and programs to help moms have full-term pregnancies and babies begin healthy lives. The event is expected to pull 300 riders from three different cities that will converge at Hoodoo Resort.

"Seeing the riders set out together in support of the smallest members of our community is always an incredible sight. The roar of the bikes moving in unison speaks to the power this group has to help babies," said Aimee Knabe, March of Dimes Division Director.

The roar of the bikes will be heard from Cascade Harley-Davidson in Bend, Salem Harley-Davidson in Salem, and Doyle's Harley-Davidson in Eugene. When they all meet up at Hoodoo, bikers from across the state will enjoy live music, barbeque, a tattoo contest and more. Thanks to the support of generous bikers, this event raised over $54,000 in its first two years to fund local community projects, innovative research, education and advocacy in the quest to improve the health of babies by preventing birth defects, premature birth and infant mortality.
