If you are a fan of country music, ride a motorcycle, or are just looking for something to do over the weekend, then head on down to Mountain Top, PA this Sunday for the 4th Annual Country Concert and Motorcycle Ride benefitting cystic fibrosis.
The event will take place at the American Legion Post 781 grounds and is hosted by the parents of Paige Ceaser, a four-year-old girl diagnosed with Cystic Fibrosis from birth. Since her diagnosis, the Ceaser family has been spreading awareness and hosting events such as this, every year in an effort to raise money for a cure for the hereditary disease affecting nearly 1,000 additional individuals a year.
The event will hold a 65 mile motorcycle ride that will begin at the Wilkes-Barre Kmart, proceeding through Conyingham Valley and ending at the American Legion Post 781. Those wishing to participate in the ride can register from 9:30 am to 11:30 am at the Wilkes-Barre Kmart with the cost being $10 per person. Individuals will also receive coffee, donuts, and water from Dunkin Donuts with the first 200 registrants receiving thank you bags.
With the motorcycle run being rained out last year, the event still raised $5,000 and is hoping to exceed that number this year.
For all those country lovers out there, the event will also feature a concert given by Kartune, Farmers Daughter, Jeanne Zano, Tommy Guns, Lena & South Street, Big Carl and Sundance and Crystal Martinex, who also has Cystic Fibrosis. The concert starts at 1 pm with admission costing $5.00 and those 12 and under granted entrance for free.
