Peoria Ride

We raise funds and build awareness of St. Jude Children's Research Hospital through motorcycle rides to St. Jude children's Research Hospital in Memphis, TN and the St. Jude Midwest affiliate located in Peoria, IL.  Peoria is home to St. Jude’s first affiliate clinic, which opened in 1972, and the community is a great supporter of St. Jude. Our goal is to financially help to further their mission of advancing cures and find preventions for childhood cancers.

In 2007, a group of motorcycle enthusiasts took to the road, traveling 465 miles from Peoria, Illinois, to Memphis to raise $90,000 for St. Jude. In 2016, we raised $712,6000 and the event total has raised $4.4 million in 10 years!

Founded by Peoria Sheriff Mike McCoy and Brad Wiebler, a typical St. Jude Ride bringst 150 motorcyclists with 76 passengers on the journey from Peoria to Memphis. Satellite rides from five cities brought the total number of riders and passengers to 375. And we are growing larger each year.

We welcome you to participate with your dollars, or join us on our ride. this event is extremely heartwarming. You will meet wonderful people who all participate for various reasons. Expect lots of nice surprises. This unique experience is well worth the effort. Please contact us for further information.
