Davidson County, N.C. — Davidson County’s Seventh Annual Ridin’ Hawg Wild motorcycle ride, which is happening on Saturday, will be raising money for autism and hydrocephalus.

Motorcycle riders from the county as well as other supporters usually gather once a year for the annual Barbecue Festival to help raise autism awareness. This year, the organizers decided to donate a portion of the money they will raise to the Hydrocephalus Association.

Like autism, hydrocephalus is a condition that affects a number of children. Mental and physical development in patients with hydrocephalus are often affected due to the buildup of cerebrospinal fluid in their brain.

According to the ride’s creator, Mandy Jones:

“Just seeing the people come out to help and spread awareness is (impactful). I feel very blessed and thankful we’re in our seventh year. With support of (the Barbecue Festival executive director) Stephanie (Saintsing Naset), it’s grown over the years. It means a lot. I can’t thank them enough for their support.”

Entry fee for riders who wish to join the Seventh Annual Ridin’ Hawg Wild motorcycle ride starts at $20 for single riders, and $30 for those who will ride with a passenger, with lunch included. The ride will be throughout Davidson County, and will end at TJ’s High Rock Lake Restaurant and Lounge.
