Chad Smith Ride for Life

Chad Smith Ride For Life" bike ride started 10 years ago, when a group of family and friends started a motorcycle ride to raise funds to help Chad Smith with his medical bills as he struggled to fight cancer. After Chad Smith passed away from cancer, the bike ride continued, and has grown into a large community event that takes place the same weekend every year. The motorcycles line up at Ditto's Bar, 23 W Central Ave, St Michael, and led by the St Michael Fire Department, they take off to ride for the day, making stops at various locations, and then returning to Ditto's for a night of live auction, raffles, prizes, a great meal, dancing and fun. Every year they ride for another "victim" of cancer in the community. Chad's Ride has helped numerous individuals and families over the years, and will continue to grow and flourish with the support of others like you!

Chad Smith "Run for Life" 5K Run/Walk

In 2017, we added a "Run for Life" 5k Run/Walk event to the start of the motorcycle run.  The 5K run/walk event is in keeping with the mission of the Chad Smith "Ride for Life," which is to unite people who are passionate about raising money for families who are suffering from cancer.  We would love for you to join us next year.  Watch for upcoming information about the 2018 5k Run/Walk event!
