Oh, What a Ride!

Over 140 bikers and their passengers recently took part in the 2nd Annual Megan’s House Ride for Recovery, raising over $15,000 to help make a difference in the lives of young women in recovery.

The riders left Joker’s Lounge in Dracut around 10am, Saturday June 3rd, embarking on a 70-mile roundtrip journey that took them to New Hampshire and back. They were seen off by a contingent of Megan’s House residents who waved, cheered and popped colorful streamers into the air.

The bikers even passed under a giant American flag unfurled off a fire department ladder truck, a last minute goodwill gesture from Dracut Town Manager James Duggan, who has been a tremendous supporter of Megan’s House.

Following the trek, the riders were joined by supporters who participated in a celebration that featured four live bands, dozens of raffle prizes and lots of great memories.

The Megan’s House Foundation would like to extend heartfelt appreciation to all who participated, especially Kathy Masterson and the folks at Jokers Lounge for once again hosting and organizaing such an outstanding event. They were joined by Lowell resident Paul Belley, who helped with the ride and also rounded up the four musical acts which had attendees dancing and singing well into the night.

Lastly, thank you to the hundreds of individuals who attended in some way, shape or form. Your generosity goes a long way toward ensuring the yougn women who call Meagn’s House home can continue to grow and lead independetn, productive lives.
