2012 Bikers For Babies Jacksonville

By Raven Van Pelt

Bikers For Babies JacksonvilleMotorcyclists from all over northeast Florida joined the ride for Bikers for Babies at Adamec Harley-Davidson, on Baymeadows Road, Jacksonville. There was food, giveaways and a 50 mile police-escorted ride through Jacksonville, and ending at TRIO, The Event Place at Tinseltown Touchton Rd., Jacksonville, all proceeds benefit the Northeast Florida March of Dimes.

The March of Dimes is the leading nonprofit organization for pregnancy and baby health. With chapters nationwide, their mission is to improve the health of babies by preventing birth defects, premature birth, and infant mortality. 81,686 babies are born in the US. 10,058 babies are born premature. 6,677 babies are born with a low birth weight and 548 babies die before their first birthday.

Dee Snider, best known as the lead singer of Twisted Sister, is the National Spokesperson for the March of Dimes Bikers for Babies; two of his four children were born prematurely. Special thanks go out to Ray and his wife
Annie Grogan chairs, and Stephanie Lippmcott community director, for the March of Dimes. Also thanks to LAMA of Jacksonville who received plaques for their fund raising efforts and another for most riders in the First Annual March of Dimes Bikers for Babies in Jacksonville.
