100 percent of all proceeds from the motorcycle ride go directly to year-round programs at the Channel 3 Kids Camp, which serves 4,000 children ages 6 to 16 in Connecticut and throughout New England. Funds from this event will further assist with opening the Camp for ALL Kids and support the building of Ashley’s Place, which will accommodate children with special needs.
