First up, Papa will be riding the "Mother Road - Route 66", from May 20 - June 25. Then meandering through the Southwest U.S., attending the RSM US Owners' meeting at the Aria Casino in Las Vegas as a "retired owner" before heading home.

  • 38 days

  • 13 states

  • ~5,000 miles

The "Spirit of St. Louis" will be in full swing July 13, 2024, as Dray is honored to throw the first pitch of this perennial summertime showdown between Cardinals and Cubs.

Mark your calendars and get your tickets early.  Pre-sale interest is very high, and tickets are going fast. Email Cathy Frietsch to obtain tickets. 

If your calendar is already booked for something else, please consider supporting the fight against childhood cancer with a donation of whatever amount you can afford. 

On behalf of Dray and all the kids in the fight, the Ride 4 Dray is grateful for your prayers and support!

St Jude Rides - Peoria to Memphis '24

On September 12 - 14, 2024, the Ride 4 Dray will also participate in the annual St. Jude Rides - Peoria Memphis ride. 

465 miles one-way, Peoria to Memphis.  Escorted by motorcycle police, over 150 bikers made the journey in 2023. Altogether, a record of $1.2 million, was donated to St. Jude.


Our goal for 2024 is to double last year's results.  Yes, "DOUBLE"! Double everything.  Double the number of riders, and most importantly double the total donation amount.   

My fundraising goal for St. Jude Rides 2024 is $5,000.  Please help me, help St. Jude!  Please DONATE to St Jude Today!
