1,500 bikes take to the streets for 15th Annual MDA Tub Run

Posted:

JANESVILLE (WKOW) -- Hundreds of hogs hit the streets of Janesville to raise money for a good cause.

Around 1,500 bikes of all shapes and sizes packed the Kutter's Harley Davidson in Janesville for the 15th annual MDA Tub Run.

An event that raises money for The Muscular Dystrophy Association.

Crowds gathered to watch riders parade the streets of Janesville, then the bikes rode through scenic back roads of Rock County.

For participants, the event is more than just a great ride.

"It's gotta make you feel good to help your neighbor help the needy. Kids that really need the money to get what they need for their disease," says participant Scott Peterson.

The Janesville Harley Group has raised almost $1.4 million for the MDA over the past 14 years, the second highest in the nation.

WKOW 27 is a proud supporter of the MDA.
