If you have never ridden in the Rally, I would like to give you a little background. The Rally was founded by owner and CEO of Rockford Construction, John Wheeler. A motorcycle enthusiast himself, John thought, what better way to help out people in need than to get a bunch of bikers together, have some fun and show how caring motorcyclists can be? And the Rally for Hunger was born. The Rally takes place on Saturday, July 26, 2008.
