FORT WAYNE, Ind. (21Alive) – It was a fun day of fitness and fundraising around Fort Wayne at the first ever Ronald McDonald House Charity cycling event.
Over 150 riders took part, along with Ronald McDonald himself, at four different cycling distances.
The event started at Kreager Park near Taylor's Dream Playground, and cyclists rode from 15 miles to as far as 60 miles all to benefit the families of the Ronald McDonald House.
“It's healthy, it's a fun thing for families to do, and cycling has become really popular in our community. I just felt like it was really just a great thing to do in the spring and a good way to support families of the Ronald McDonald House,” said Lisa Pacula, Executive Director of Ronald McDonald House Charity.
Organizers say they were very pleased with the event in it's first year and would like to do it all over again next year.
