The Rockin' Warriors Ride is being put on by two brave young girls named Lillian and Rya, along with their families and contributing businesses, to help support three important organizations that provide essential help for those families in our area that have a child going thru a cancer journey.   Tanner's Team Foundation, INDY, and Wishes & More.  Both of these young ladies have been on their own cancer journeys, and are still in it; but they decided they wanted to do something about it, and help other families going through the same struggles.

Lillian and Rya have been there for each other, and Lillian was able to be there when the Wishes and More Foundation of Minnesota granted Rya her wish to go to Disney. Lillian was able to take a trip to Duluth with her family earlier, so it was a treat that Lillian was able to share the great news with her friend Rya.


I know that not everyone will be able to attend this great event in October, but if you would like to show your support for these girls, the hard work that they and their families are doing, as well as the great organizations that support families going through these difficult times, I hope you will take the time to do so by clicking HERE to learn how you can help.  You can also email Alyssa and Renee at
