Kentucky Department of Highways Workers Hosting 100-Mile Benefit Ride September 11
Kentucky Department of Highways workers are hosting a 100-mile benefit ride on Saturday, Sept. 11, for the Kentucky Employees Charitable Campaign (KECC).
The ride is open to motorcycle riders, antique car and truck drivers or anyone else who wants to join in to raise money for six accredited statewide charities: United Way of Kentucky, Christian Appalachian Project, Community Health Charities, Easter Seals of Kentucky, Prevent Child Abuse Kentucky and WHAS Crusade for Children.
Registration begins at 10:30 a.m. Sept. 11 at the Kentucky Department of Highways District 9 office, 822 Elizaville Ave., Flemingsburg. The ride will begin at noon. Riders and drivers will follow a course along KY 11, US 68 and other routes. Maps will be provided. Stops will be made in Montgomery County and at Blue Licks Battlefield State Resort Park before returning to the District 9 office in Flemingsburg for a cookout and prize drawings. Cost is $10 per vehicle and driver, and $5 for each additional passenger. All proceeds will benefit KECC charities, many of which serve Fleming and surrounding counties.
The Kentucky Employees Charitable Campaign (KECC) is a partnership of Kentucky state employees and the six accredited statewide charities, which together work to make a significant difference in the lives of our families, friends and neighbors throughout the Commonwealth. Partner charities represent more than a thousand charitable programs and agencies addressing health and human services needs in Kentucky.
Since 1993, the KECC has provided the opportunity for state employees to contribute to eligible charitable organizations through payroll deduction and through organizing public fund-raisers such as golf scrambles, benefit rides and other events.
