The Make-A-Wish Foundation fulfills wishes for children with life-threatening medical conditions. You can help them do that by participating in the second annual Ride for Wishes today. The 70-mile ride beings at Ted’s Motorcycle World in Alton and takes riders through Jerseyville, Carrollton, Medora and Brighton before ending at the Alton-Wood River Sportsmen’s Club in Godfrey.
Event organizer Norma Glazebrook tells The Big Z it all gets started just before noon.

There will be attendance prizes and a silent auction. The cost to ride is $25 in advance or $30 per person if you register the day of the ride. Each participant will receive a commemorative patch.
