Run for Ben


5th ANNUAL RUN for BENrunforbenFinal

100 mile Motorcycle Ride in Honor of Ben

This is our fifth year holding the Run For Ben. Ben was our family border collie who was killed by a hit and run driver by our farm in 2010. We organized the run to raise money for Prairie Paws in Ben’s memory. We’ve steadily grown from a dozen or so bikes the first year to nearly 30 in 2014. For 2015 our goal is to have 50 or more bikes! So if you ride or know someone who does, or if you love animals or know someone who does, you’re welcome! This year we’re meeting in Ottawa’s Forest Park in the morning for breakfast, registration and admiring each other’s rides, then we’ll roll out together down Ottawa’s historic Victorian Main Street before a 100 mile scenic ride through Franklin and Douglas counties. We’ll finish off with a taco dinner, prizes and live classic rock from Frisk. Hope to see you all there! – James Compton

Proceeds Benefit Prairie Paws Animal Shelter!
