On Saturday, Aug. 28, a motorcycle bike rally for The Alex Hood Run for Disabled Children had a stop at The Cabin in Overgaard around 10:30 a.m. Almost 100 motorcycles roared through town for this charity.
Billy Martin, one of the motorcycle rally participants who resides in Taylor, said many came not just from our local area, but from places pretty far away.
“When it is a good cause, there usually is no shortage of motorcyclists that show up for a benefit such as this,” he went on to say. The Alex Hood Run for Disabled Children started in Show Low and came here to Heber-Overgaard. Then it went on to Holbrook, Snowflake and ended up in Pinetop at Woodland Park. A local child and his or her family directly benefits from this bike run.
