SPRINGFIELD, Mo. — Motorcycle riders revved their engines Saturday morning all in support of a little girl battling cancer.
Cruisin’ for Emma, a 70 mile ride raised money for Emma Grace, a three year old diagnosed with a rare form of cancer.
Her father says there are a few treatments left, but today was a celebration of her beating her cancer fight.
The Ozark Defenders organized the ride, which cruised down 125 to a highway back to QC Moto on Kearney.
Participants sported purple ribbons and balloons in support of Emma.
Gary Klossing, Missouri Defenders Motorcycle Club, says, “We get out and ride to support causes, we don’t hesitate we are non profit we go out there and do anything we can to raise money for this wonderful family”
Shane Ribbing, Emma’s father, says, “Thank you to everybody it truly touches me and my family”
After the ride, there were plenty of activities for kids and people could listen to music, eat food, and participate in raffle drawings.
