Sep 16, 2022 | Member News

The Realities Ride & Rally on Aug. 26-27 brought together thousands of motorcyclists and the community to raise money for local youth in need.

The Rally kicked off at The Biergarten at Anheuser-Busch drawing more than 500 people through the gates in the first 40 minutes resulting in SCHEELS donating 50 new bicycles to the children we serve. The Friday evening fun also included a free concert featuring Johnny and The Mongrels & My Blue Sky, a Veteran’s tribute, stunt shows, pyrotechnics, and a surprise donation of $9,921 from Dude Dad!

Once again exceeding the undisputed record set in 2013, nearly 2,000 riders came together to ride in the 21st Annual Realities Ride on Saturday, Aug. 27. The tremendous support we witnessed this year showed the true heart of the riding community and Guinness World Records agreed! Guinness has memorialized the ‘Realities Ride’ to Forever be the World’s Largest Motorcycle Poker Run.

By coming together for the common cause of bringing hope to local children who have been abused, neglected or are at-risk this year’s Ride & Rally raised over $110,000 in Emergency Funding. Thanks to our Business Members and Event Sponsors, 100% of these funds will provide direct services for the children we ride for when there is nowhere else to turn.

“What makes the Realities Ride so special is that it lets these children know that until they have a family of their own, they have a forever family with all of us,” said Craig Secher, executive director and founder of Realities For Children Charities.
