First Ever Mercy Motorcycle Ride Fundraiser Coming Soon!

What could be better than a Saturday drive down the scenic Natchez Trace in the fall? How about doing that drive on a motorcycle, while raising money for Mercy Ministries!

On Saturday, September 24th at 10:00am, motorcycle riders will gather at Applebee’s restaurant at 8100 Highway 100 South in Nashville, Tennessee for the first ever “Mercy Rides” fundraising event. Registration is $20, and if you register before September 19th, you will also get lunch at Applebee’s restaurant and a cool t-shirt. A portion of all proceeds will benefit Mercy Ministries.

Riders will sign in and receive their t-shirts at Applebee’s at 10:00am before heading out for the beautiful 40 mile ride to the historic Gordon House. Riders will then take a water break and enjoy the scenery before heading back to Applebee’s for an amazing lunch. To register for this event or for more information about “Mercy Rides” and a map of the route, go to www.mercyrides.com.

The idea for this event came when earlier this year, Dennis Lindey read about the Jeff Fisher & Friends Charity Softball Game and the local organizations, including Mercy Ministries, which benefited from the event. His company, The Capricorn Effect, has been planning fundraising events for two decades, and their mission is “to make a difference by using the ways we live, work and play to serve those in need.”

After looking into the work being done at Mercy, Dennis contacted us and planned this unique and fun way to raise money for Mercy while doing something he loves. If you have an idea for using your resources, gifts and talents to raise money for Mercy Ministries, you can download our fundraising kit by clicking here.

Special thanks to Dennis for all your hard work to put together this exciting new event! Check out Dennis’ website at www.thecapricorneffect.com.
