Motorcyclists from around the Southeast joined together on Saturday for the Prairie Winds Motorcycle Fun Ride to raise money for a deserving cause. 

"We had the Ronald McDonald Ride," explained Raeline Fieber, Road Captain. "We had 84 riders. Weyburn joined us in Stoughton. We rode to Lampman, Arcola, around Stoughton and had super there. And it was all to raise money for Ronald McDonald House in Saskatoon and hopefully someday in Regina."

They also had raffle tickets and door prizes and were able to raise around $4,000. 

"It was a great ride and the weather was awesome."

She adds that it started out a number of years ago, when the Prairie Riders had taken on the fun ride for the Ronald McDoanld House and after that club disbanded, the Prairie Winds took over the ride for the past three years. 

"It's a great cause and many many families have used it and hopefully we can raise enough money to keep it going hopefully someday get one in Regina as well."

She adds her thanks to the many businesses throughout Estevan Carlyle, Stoughton, Oxbow, Carlyle and Weyburn who donated prizes and money.
