Trails4Transplants charity ride planned

WARREN, Minn. – Horseback riders taking part in Trails4Transplants will travel from Warren to St. Anthony, N.D., May 31 to June 13 to promote organ and tissue donation awareness across the region.

All proceeds will be donated to Gift of Life Transplant House in Rochester, Minn., where families can stay at a reduced cost while waiting for or after an organ transplant.

All experienced riders are welcome. Riders may join or stop at any leg of the trail.

Each night camp will be set up in the following designated towns in North Dakota: Manvel, Emerado, Hatton, Finley, Cooperstown, Glenfield, Carrington, Sykeston, Bowdon, Tuttle, Wing, Sterling, Mandan and St. Anthony.

Support vehicles will be available to help move trucks and trailers to the next designated camping area.

The cost is $1 per mile ridden. The public is also invited to join evening campfires to meet and greet riders and contribute to the cause.
