D10 Motorcycle Run Raises $7,000

USW members from across Pennsylvania rallied on Saturday, Aug. 20, for the annual District 10 motorcycle run.

The event was the district’s ninth and most successful bike run yet, with members raising more than $7,000 for the March of Dimes March for Babies.

About 60 members and about three dozen motorcycles took part in the trip from Linden Hall in Dawson, Pa., to Deep Creek Lake, Md., and back again to Linden Hall, where they had dinner and participated in raffles and other fundraising events.

The March for Babies funds research, education and advocacy programs to improve the health of new mothers and their babies. Every dollar raised for the motorcycle run goes directly to the charity. Donations for the motorcycle run came through District 10 and from more than a dozen local unions, as well as from individual donors and businesses throughout Pennsylvania. 

One group of members from Local 10-00086 near Philadelphia made the nearly 600-mile round-trip from their hometown to Linden Hall to attend the event.

“USW members are always willing to put their time and energy toward a worthy cause, and it’s great to see,” said event organizer and District 10 staff rep Rick Benson. “This was yet another example of Steelworkers making their community a better place.”
