Engines were revving for 3rd annual East Grand Forks Fire Department Motorcycle Ride
Engines were revving in East Grand Forks this morning. Today was the third annual East Grand Forks Fire Department Motorcycle Ride. Nearly 150 riders rode 150 miles to raise money for the Fire Department Relief Association. The East Grand Forks Eagles Club presented the association a check for 5,000 dollars, which they say will be used to buy new river rescue equipment.
Paul Hansen - East Grand Forks Fire Department: "We have a raffle. It's $100 a ticket. You get $10,000. There's 200 tickets, so we take the profit, the $9000, off that."
They expect the bikers to raise more than 15-thousand dollars.
