Due to weather predictions of 80% chance of thunderstorms with lightening, for the safety of our riders, our staff and of course, our animals, Anderson Animal Shelter has chosen to cancel JUST THE RIDE PORTION of our Ride4Animals event.
Although this was a tough decision, we hope you will understand that safety of our supporters and animals will always be our number one concern during events such as these. However, our After Party is still on....and it's GONNA ROCK!!
We hope to see all riders and their passengers meet at the intended last stop of Anderson's Ride4Animals, which is hosted by Gifford's Kitchen, located at 2300 Bushwood Drive in Elgin, IL. All stop activities with the exception of a small few, will still happen at the After Party!
