2015 Big Bikes for Little Tikes to benefit 12-year-old from Arcadia

This year Big Bikes for Little Tikes will benefit 12-year-old Donovan Johnson of Arcadia.

The event, which includes a 100+ mile motorcycle ride through the Coulee Region, will be held on Saturday, May 16 at 11:30 a.m.

Johnson was diagnosed with Desmoplastic Small Round Cell tumors in 2013. He had his first surgery on his 10 th birthday and has completed more than a year of very regular and intense chemotherapy and radiation.

Johnson’s twin brother Damien has been right by his side, staying at the hospital with him most of the time, according to event organizer 95.7 The Rock. Both boys are in 6th grade at Arcadia Middle School. Donovan is involved in various sports and is doing very well in school considering he missed a year and a half.

Donovan would like to take his mom, Damien and his other brothers and sisters to Soak City Water and Amusement Park in Ohio.

Pre-registration is available online now for $25. Registration will be open at the La Crosse Area Harley Davidson at 10 a.m.  for $30. The post-ride party will be held at the Onalaska American Legion.
