“Chrome City” Cycle Ride to Help Kids with Disabilities

Benedictine School
Ridgely, MD
June 2013

Gleaming motorcycles, awesome street rods, classic and custom cars will roar in from all over the region to the Benedictine School in Ridgely for the highly anticipated 12th Annual Chrome City Ride on Sunday July 28, 2013. The event will fund tuition assistance for children, and opportunities to work and live in the community for adults with disabilities. Organized and produced by volunteers primarily from state and local law enforcement, the previous eleven years of Chrome City Rides have raised over a million dollars.

“Chrome City Ride is a wonderful opportunity not only to raise needed money, but for our friends to come here, meet our special people, and see what a great place this is,” said Benedictine’s Executive Director Scott Evans. “The kids and everyone here look forward to when the motorcycles and cars come up the lane onto our campus. It is a spectacle, but we especially appreciate that the riders return year after year. Our friends mean a lot to us.”

Owners of impressive cars and bikes from all over Maryland and Delaware will gather at various designated locations, then cruise in convoys with police escorts to the Benedictine School campus. The $25-per-rider pledge provides each rider with an official Ride T-shirt, a delicious catered lunch, entertainment (including the return of “Rockin’ Elvis”), a chance for prizes and trophies, and a day of fun showing off their chrome to an appreciative crowd. Spectators are also welcome, and their $25 minimum contribution also provides them with an official Ride T-shirt, lunch and a day of fun. The riders and their machines are expected to arrive on campus around 11:30 AM.
