Our area has more than its share of Charity Bike Runs, virtually all of them for very good causes. It is a fun way to do a fundraiser for sure. This week there is a major run for an exceptionally good cause and they could certainly use your participation.
The 3rd annual Brody’s Run for Spina Bifita is this Saturday, the 22nd. There are a lot of supporters for this noble cause and they are trying to get the word out to get as many participants as possible. This event is unique as there are two separate runs that come together at the end. The Tennessee Run begins at Everette’s Saloon in Johnson City with a $5 breakfast at 9:30 and kickstands up at 10:30. Stops include Big Orange, VFW Jonesborough, Erwin Elks, TC’s Stoney Creek and ending at Pork & Beanz Shady Valley.
The Virginia Run starts at Indian Motorcycles Bristol with breakfast also at 9:30 and kickstands up at 10:30. This version features stops at Washington County VA Moose Lodge, Smyth County Moose Lodge, Food City in Damascus and then ends at Pork & Beanz Shady Valley.
When everyone gets together at Pork & Beanz, there will be live music by Southbound and also Bonnie Blue, a benefit dinner by Jim’s Meat Market, many other activities and fireworks after dark. They mention a Big Surprise around 6:00 PM. Donations are $20 per bike and $5 per passenger.
Bear’s Bar is a major booster of this event, and they are forgoing their normal Saturday night band in order to boost attendance for Brody’s Run.
