Free Tickets for first 300 Ride for Life Preregistrants

View images from the 20th annual Ride for Life Motorcycle Rally, which was held on July 12 to benefit the Vikings Children's Fund.

The return of summer means it's only a short time until the 21st annual Ride for Life Motorcycle Rally.

The fundraiser for the Vikings Children's Fund will be a thunderous roar of support for children in the Upper Midwest as riders roll down the highway from Hugo to Hinckley, Minnesota on Saturday, July 18.

"It's a great opportunity to get together, bring your enthusiasm and passion for motorcycles and combine that with Vikings football," Vikings Children's Fund Coordinator Pat Leopold said. "You get a chance to meet-and-greet Vikings players, enjoy motorcycles, great food and drink. We have a nice ride organized and we get great support from the state patrol."

There are two ways that riders can participate: by starting (check-in opens at 9 a.m.) at the Blue Heron Grill in Hugo (where Vikings current players, alumni and cheerleaders will have an autograph session starting at 10:30 a.m.) and departing with the group at 11:45 a.m. for Hinckley; or by riding independently to Hinckley's Outdoor Amphitheater where check-in begins at 11 a.m. and the group ride is scheduled to finish at 12:35 p.m.

The cost of participation is $15, with proceeds going to the Vikings Children's Fund. Day-of registration is available at either location, but there's an extra benefit to preregistering.

The first 300 registrants online or by mail will receive a free pair of tickets to the Vikings Aug. 22 preseason game against the Raiders. Preregistrations must be received by July 13.

A $20,000 prize party, which includes $5,000 in cash, will begin at 1 p.m. at Hinckley's Outdoor Amphitheater.
