Named after the Green Bay Packers’ former director of security, the tenth annual Jerry Parins Cruise for Cancer will be held on Saturday June 8.
In the previous nine years, the event has raised more than $590,000 for families throughout Northeastern Wisconsin battling cancer.
The event centers around a motorcycle ride from Green Bay to Peshtigo, Wis. and back, but non-motorcycle riders are free to take part in the post-ride party at Lambeau Field’s North Loft, the rooftop deck below the TundraVision in the north end zone.
According to the official Packers release:
This year’s ride features a route from Green Bay’s Vandervest Harley-Davidson to Vandervest Harley-Davidson in Peshtigo and then to Lambeau Field for the post-ride party. The ride leaves Green Bay at 11 a.m.
On the day of the ride, registration begins at 9 a.m. and will continue through 10:30 a.m. at Vandervest Harley-Davidson in Green Bay. The post-ride party begins at 3 p.m. at Lambeau Field in the North Loft, which can be accessed through the Bellin Health Gate. The party will include food and drink for purchase, a silent and live auction and fun while bringing awareness to cancer. Attendees will also have the opportunity to get autographs from Packers players in exchange for a $10 donation to the event.
A $20 donation per driver and $15 donation per passenger is required to participate in the ride. All registered riders will receive a free Cruise for Cancer commemorative bandana. All proceeds will go toward helping local families throughout Northeastern Wisconsin battling cancer.
Interested riders also can raise additional money for the cause and win prizes by enlisting the help of others with the use of a pledge form. Top fundraisers will receive Vandervest Harley-Davidson gift cards. The form and more information are available on the event website, www.cruiseforcancer.org.
