Rockford event raises $3,000 for charities

Road captains Jason Fisher and Bill Mong.

The fifth annual Motorcycles for Mutts (& kitties too) ride was held on August 13. Despite a weather forecast for Rockford that kept many folks from attending, they had a fabulous day. The ride was routed to go to east and south of Rockford, so they only had about five miles of rain to contend with the whole day. It just goes to prove: If you don’t like the weather in Michigan, wait five minutes; it will change.

Organizer Lori Vorpi of Vorpi Chiropractic stated, “We had 32 bikes and about 50 riders join us for the whole day to support C-SNIP and the ASPCA. We were able to raise $3,000 for

our charities. C-SNIP has now performed over 70,000 low-cost and no-cost spay and neuter procedures.”

Road captains Jason Fisher and Bill Mong and fellow road captains Russ Baker, Jim Pate and Paul Flanery planned the route for Saturday with an obvious vision for avoiding Mother Nature.

The grand prize winner was John Ritter of Rockford. He was presented with two round-trip airline tickets donated by AirTran by Kristie Swan and C-SNIP Director Pat Schoen.
