Scooter ride will raise funds for Special Olympics

A motor scooter ride on Sept. 28 will serve as a kick-off to a larger event the following weekend, with both events raising funds for Huntington County Special Olympics.

Both are sponsored by Eagles Lodge 823, of Huntington.
The motor scooter ride is open to anyone, age 18 or older, with a scooter. No bicycles or motorcycles will be allowed.

Registration begins at 8 a.m. on Sept. 28 at the Eagles Lodge, 49 W. Washington St. in Huntington, and the per-person registration fee may be paid at that time.

Riders will leave from the Eagles Lodge at 8:30 a.m.

The ride will last about two hours, with riders remaining in Huntington the entire time. Food will be available along the route.

As the riders return to the Eagles Lodge, between 10:30 a.m. and 11 a.m., they will form a mini-parade down Cherry Street.

A raffle, featuring a variety of prizes, will be held during the event. Walking tacos will be available to the public at the Eagles Lodge.

The Oct. 5 event will be held from 9 a.m. to 1 a.m. at the Eagles Lodge.

Activities will include a cake walk, cornhole, face painting, Wii games, a haunted hotel, race cars, live entertainment, raffles and an auction. All activities are free.

Food and drinks will be available for purchase, but will be provided free to special needs adults and children.
