‘Walk-It-Out’ Motorcycle Rally to Aid American Cancer Society


A motorcycle rally, a new addition to Pennsylvania College of Technology’s annual “Walk-It-Out” benefit for the American Cancer Society, will be held Saturday, April 17.

The Wildcat Events Board is sponsoring the ride, which will begin at 10 a.m. at the Carl Building Technologies Center parking lot and follow a 42-mile designated route through Loyalsock Township, Picture Rocks, Hughesville and Pennsdale before returning to main campus.

“We really want to encourage the community to get involved with the motorcycle rally,” said Michael J. Hersh, assistant director of student activities for programming and co-chair of the ride. “This is a brand-new event, and we are hoping to make it a success.”

On-site registration will begin at 9 a.m. The entry fees of $15 per rider and $10 for each passenger, which will be fully donated to the American Cancer Society, include a commemorative T-shirt and lunch on the Madigan Library lawn beginning at noon. The walk-a-thon portion of the fundraiser will be held there from noon to 4 p.m.

Walk-It-Out is a mini-Relay for Life designed to raise money, increase the college community’s awareness, and to honor survivors and those who have lost their lives to cancer. In its first two years, the event collected more than $13,500; the 2010 goal is $10,000.
