MDA teams up with Bakersfield Harley-Davidson to help Kern County families

BAKERSFIELD, Calif. - Bakersfield Harley-Davidson is flexing its muscle for a good cause, helping hundreds of families this weekend.

The group is teaming up with the Muscular Dystrophy Association, or MDA and hosting the Rock 'N Ride For Life.

It's the 29th year for the fundraiser.

Families enjoyed a great meal, a free concert, and plenty of children's activities.

The charity motorcycle event raises about $25,000 every year.

Funds help MDA continue patient services and research studies in the fight against more than 40 neuromuscular diseases.

"Definitely gives our families hope. It gives them hope that they have these big heart motorcycle riders, this wonderful large sponsor that is fighting their fight with them, believing and knowing that cures are going to be found very soon and I think it's kind of great to have that support to our local families," said Renee Contreras, MDA fundraising coordinator.

If you weren't able to make it out today, no worries, donations are being accepted online at the MDA website or at the Harley Davidson dealership in Bakersfield.
