Ride For A Cause

3dd-12

The 3rd annual 3DD/Better Life Foundation “Ride for a Cause” took place November 17th in Tunica, MS and was a huge amount of fun. The ride (promoted by the Dixie Thunder Run) started Saturday morning at Southern Thunder Harley Davidson in South Haven, MS, and ended at the Roadhouse Casino in Tunica. This was followed by a lunch/social which included an awards ceremony. Great food and people equaled a great time.

The day was closed out at the Horseshoe Casino next door with a concert. The show was opened by Anna Morgan, was followed by Daughtry, and closed out with 3 Doors Down. Talk about a full evening. I’ll definitely attend again next year.

The mission of the Better Life Foundation is to make a positive change in the lives of children in need of food, shelter, and medical assistance, and to enhance the lives of children and young adults with special needs.

The motto “Soldiers Helping Soldiers” is a testimony to the ride’s beginnings when a few soldiers of the 155 Brigade Combat Team of Mississippi, while still deployed in Iraq, put together the logistics for the first ever Dixie Thunder Run in 2006. In the beginning the Dixie Thunder Run was a motorcycle ride to benefit deployed soldier’s families of Mississippi. As it spread by word of mouth, soldiers and supporters have joined over the past Six years to make the Dixie Thunder Run the largest organized motorcycle ride in the state of Mississippi.
