Short memorial ride to be Sunday
Tuesday, August 7, 2012
The 10th annual Jennifer Short Memorial Scholarship Bike/Car Ride will be held Sunday.
All donations from the $10 per rider/passenger admission go to the scholarship fund in Jennifer’s memory. That fund is overseen by the Kiwanis Club of Bassett.
Registration for the ride will begin at 11 a.m. at Super Country 99.9 WZBB on U.S. 220 near Oak Level.
Participants will embark on the 35-mile ride at 1 p.m., proceeding from the registration point to U.S. 220 South.
The ride will continue to the Virginia/North Carolina state line and Exit 135, where riders will turn right at the light and then left onto Dan Valley Road, followed by a left onto River Road and a left onto Grogan Road. They will stop at a bridge near where Jennifer’s remains were found.
Participants then will return to Henry County and gather at Bassett High School, where the ride will end at CrossPoint Church.
Donated food and refreshments will be provided throughout the ride, which also is sponsored by RAYzor’s Edge Photography.
