Annual MARC Run set for April 13th

The 12th annual MARC Run, brought to you by The Bad To The Bone Riders of Rockdale, will take place on April 13 at The Ranch, 415 W. US 79 in Rockdale, organizer Charles Starr said. This annual ride benefits The MARC (Milam Adult Resource Center) of Milam County and serves all Milam County Adult Residents with physical and learning disabilities.

The MARC is a 501c3 Organization (non-profit organization) that depends on this fund-raiser to be a major resource to keep serving the consumers that it does. MARC teaches these consumers valuable life skills that most people take for granted in day to day life.

In the 11-year history of The MARC Run, 100% of the proceeds from its rides has been donated, amounting to over $110,000.

This year’s ride will start and stop at The Ranch. Registration begins at 9 a.m. with first bike out at 11 a.m. The ride fee is $20 for rider and $25 with a passenger. The ride fee includes a barbecue meal with all the trimmings after the ride for all participants.

They will also sell plates to the general public from 11:30 a.m. until sold out day of run. Long sleeve T-shirts are available by pre-order only for $25. Deadline to order is March 4, call Cynthia at 512-698-2784. They will have short sleeve ride shirts for $20 the day of ride.

Stops/sponsors on the ride are Cyndi’s Hawg Hang Out in Hogg, Cliff’s Tavern in Rockdale, Bob’s Steakhouse in Cameron, Nat’s in Milano and The Ranch in Rockdale.

The last bike in will be at 4 p.m. at The Ranch. Beginning at 4:30 p.m. a live auction will begin with auctioneer John Fisher.

“The live auction always promises something for everyone,” Starr said They will also have a 50/50 drawing, DJ music and door prizes. Plaques will be given out for oldest rider, oldest bike, newest bike and MARC Consumers Choice.

“Please come out and help us support this group of very special people that are so near and dear to our hearts,” Starr said. For more information about this ride or to donate auction items please contact Charles Starr, 512-540-2561 or Neal Ferrell, 512-299-7446.
