Elgin, IL- The Elgin Area Organization of Motorcycle Riders (EAO) has made a $47,500 donation to the Little Angels Center for Exceptional Care. This is in addition to the almost $63,000 which was raised for Little Angels as part of the 29th Annual Little Angels Pledge Run, bringing the 2016 Pledge Run grand total to $110,000.
Pledge Run Coordinators Ed and Gretchen Flavin admit it's a group effort to get this event up and running year in and year out. States Ed, "It feels great knowing how much we help Little Angels. The biker community is unbelievably generous. It's a lot of work but we all band together for a great cause." Gretchen adds that EAO gets considerable help from Woodstock Harley-Davidson and other motorcycle groups, such as the McHenry County Road Pirates in putting on this event.
