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 on October 4.  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 that day.
