JUNE 24, 2017!

The reason for our ride goes beyond our love of the open road and the thrills that await us around the next curve:  it’s kids.  Not just any kids, kids who have been separated from their parent as a result of crime, they experience a type of trauma that many cannot understand.  Our kids work hard every day to be the best kids they can be despite challenges in their home lives, economic hardships, and emotional turmoil.  Funds raised through this event support Parenting With Purpose’s Mentoring program. PWP’s program touches each of their lives daily as we are walk side-by-side with them to overcome.  Join us as we celebrate the many advancements our kids have made because of your support and participation!

Our mission is to inspire hope, vision and purpose in the lives of children who have an incarcerated parent.

Did you know there are 15,000 children in Minnesota that have an incarcerated parent?
60-80 percent of them will follow in their parents footsteps and enter a life of crime.
Today, one in every 100 American adults is in prison–the highest incarceration rate in our nation’s history.
