There are many different runs and rides is our area, virtually all of them to benefit a charity. One of the largest and most popular is the Brody’s Run for the Kids. The primary charity here is Spina Bifita, although this year some proceeds will go to Kingston Baker, the Kingston Can effort to help his family while he is at St. Jude.
The ride itself is in two parts. The Tennessee run starts at Everette’s Saloon in Johnson City while the Virginia run starts at Quaker Steak in Bristol. Both runs end, however, at Pork & Beanz place at the Snake Pit. It turns into a monumental party with overnight camping, bonfires, drawings, dice rolls and lots of entertainment. This year Rusty Steel and Quarterbounce are playing plus the return of Bonnie Blue.
This event is for a darn worthwhile cause and every participant has a great time. Call Beanz at 423-297-5675 or Jeff at 423-747-0247 for all the details and to register. I guarantee you won’t be disappointed.
