Ride-in for charity set for Saturday
Placeholder Image

The 10th Annual Southern Thunder Cruisers Ride-In, slated for Saturday, will benefit a 3-year-old Bulloch County girl suffering from leukemia.
Anna Hays Polk suffers from High Risk B Cell Acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia, which is “a fast-growing cancer of the white blood cells,” according to www.marrow.org. The site says: “Lymphocytes are a type of white blood cell that the body uses to fight infections. In ALL, the bone marrow makes lots of unformed cells called blasts that normally would develop into lymphocytes. However, the blasts are abnormal. They do not develop and cannot fight infections. The number of abnormal cells (or leukemia cells) grows quickly. They crowd out the normal red blood cells, white blood cells and platelets the body needs.”
The Southern Thunder Cruisers use their annual ride-in as a fundraiser to help local families with children suffering from major illnesses.
The ride-in will consist of motorcyclists who ride to Anderson’s General Store on Northside Drive East between 11 a.m. and 3 p.m. Saturday, where they can purchase chicken dinners for $10 a plate. The dinners consist of a half chicken, grilled; green beans; corn on the cob; a roll; and dessert.
