RIDE FOR WHAT'S RIGHT: Maricopa County AZ
Quick Throttle Magazine hopes you will come out and support this important event:
On October 4th, 2008 RAIA Southwest will be sponsoring a benefit rally for wrongfully imprisoned border patrol agents Ramos and Compean.
In 2005, during a failed drug smuggling attempt these men were involved in a shooting resulting in the wounding of an admitted drug runner from Mexico. For doing their jobs, defending our border, and capturing a van loaded with over 700 pounds of marijuana, these agents were sent to federal prison for 11 and 12 years.
Join us in assisting their families.
Registration for the run is from 7 to 10am at Tosos Sports Bar & Grill, 2401 W. Union Hills Drive. Admission is free, but we are asking for donations to help the Ramos and Compean families. There will be breakfast provided at no charge.
The run will leave promptly at 10am. We will ride to the state capitol at 17th Ave and Jefferson for surprise guest speakers. Once the speakers have finished there will be a road march of bikes and cars heading up I-17. We will ride past the federal prison at the Pioneer Rd exit where Nacho Ramos is currently being held.
The ride will end at the Roadrunner Saloon in New River. Live music, raffles, vendors, and discounted food will be provided.
More information will be released soon. Everyone is welcome and encouraged to attend.
