The Big People, Little Wheels race raised money for breast cancer

All the money raised stays here in western Massachusetts

SPRINGFIELD, Mass. (WWLP) – A Motorcycle Association, and tricycles, are two things not normally associated together. But on Sunday, they joined together to raise money for breast cancer.

The Big People, Little Wheels race was held on Sunday at O’Briens Corner in Springfield. It started off with a motorcycle ride organized by the Masonic Knights up to Orange and back, and then finished this Sunday afternoon with adults on bikes and tricycles meant for kids.

The event is organized by Kim Clemons, who beat breast cancer herself. “I was working, I work here as a bartender part time and also at Bay State Medical Center, I found a big wheel out here one night and proceeded to ride it in the bar. One of my friends challenged me to a race and I said if we’re going to do that we’re going to raise some money for a worthy cause,” said Kimberly Clemons.

All the money raised stays here in western Massachusetts and benefits the rays of hope through Bay State health foundation and celebration of hope of Western Massachusetts.
