NEWPORT-A local group is being organized to participate in the Bikers for Babies ride to benefit March of Dimes. The event is set for Aug. 29.

The local group will leave the Hard Core Disciples of Jesus Christ Biker Church at 408 West Broadway at 9 a.m. to travel to Dixie Stampede in Pigeon Forge. The church is located next to Arvis Keys' car lot.

Bikers for Babies will then leave Dixie Stampede at 10 a.m. and will continue on the route ending at Newport Speedway, off Industrial Road. There will be plenty of food at Newport Raceway and live bands will be performing.

The charge is $15 per motorcycle with an additional $5 charge for a second rider on the bike.

The Hard Core Disciples of Jesus Christ Thrift Store has Bikers for Babies T-shirts, wings, patches and pins available for purchase.

"We'd love to have all the participants we can get," said Preacher Ray Slater, who is organizing the Cocke County group. "All proceeds benefit March of Dimes."

Pre-registration for the motorcycle ride is not required but may be done online through the March of Dimes Web site or by calling Preacher Ray at (865) 237-2139.

West End Exxon is selling "Bikers for Babies" wings to support the event. Customers contribute a dollar then sign a wing that will benefit March of Dimes.

More information about the event will be available in the near future, according to Preacher Ray.
