    Birmingham, AL - The Dixie Divas Riding Club will host their 6th Annual “Revvin’ 4 Research” Charity Motorcycle ride on Saturday, September 6, 2014. Proceeds from the event will benefit The Breast Cancer Research Foundation of Alabama (BCRFA). 

    With the support of Heart of Dixie Harley-Davidson in Pelham, a host of generous sponsors, and an incredible group of volunteers, the annual ride has raised nearly $100,000 in five years with proceeds benefitting local breast cancer researc

    The Dixie Divas Riding Club contacted the BCRFA in 2009 with the idea to host a “Ride for Research.”  The ride was a success the first year with 148 bikes. Since then, the ride has more than doubled in size hosting nearly 400 bikes and passengers in 2013.  

    Riders of this year’s event will enjoy breakfast while registering at Heart of Dixie Harley-Davidson at 9:00 a.m. Kickstands up at 11:00 a.m. The charity event is a police-escorted ride ending back where they started at Heart of Dixie Harley-Davidson.  The After-Party will include live entertainment by the Sinners, a complimentary lunch by Courtyard Alabaster and beverages from Coca Cola Bottling Company. Registered riders will also have the opportunity to win valuable door prizes as well.

    The Dixie Divas and BCRFA together are making a strong contribution toward research for a cure. Please join us for a great time, a great ride, and take a stand against breast cancer! Register online at www.revvin4research.com today!
