Talimena Run Rally Crusin' for St. Jude

Posted: Updated:
TEXARKANA, Tx. -

Bikers are rallying together in Texarkana May 23rd-25th for a good cause.

The Talimena Run Rally is a three day event that draws bikers in from all over the country.
    
Organizers say they've been raising money for St. Jude Children's Hospital in Memphis for the past 12 years.
    
In their first rally they raised about $800, but this year they've already sent in close to $8,000.

"We come together like a big family," said Neil Jones, event coordinator. "The sole purpose is to raise money for these kids."

This is the second year, Eric Massey and his wife, have geared up for the cause.

They say it's one of their favorite events.  

"We do love to ride me and my wife both and to be able to raise a little money, it just makes for a great weekend," said Massey.

On Saturday, May 25th, the bikers will ride to Queen Wilhelmina, then at 6 p.m. they'll have dinner at Comfort Suites, followed by a concert by the Dusty Rose Band. Tickets are $25.

The event is sponsored by Whiskey River Harley-Davidson.
    
In June, the bikers will rally together again to take their donations to the St. Jude's.
