Jim Lee – 46 'Skater/US-1 Freedom and a last year’s participant in the charity ride event states…“Puttin’ on the Wish Charity Ride was an incredible experience!! Being able to take care of these kids and watch their little faces light up, was just amazing and very heart warming! A 1st class event that you most definitely want to be a part of every year and stays with you!!”

Bill Duckworth - 51' Outerlimits/Bad Boy Billy and participant of last year's charity ride event states..." It's an absolutely wonderful and heartfelt event. To give these children, the chance of their little lifetimes and the community something back through my participation, is an amazing experience to say the least. Even though, I am a powerboat enthusiast and love the events, I am a very busy man. If it weren't for Joy Schou and the children, I would not participate in these events!! Joy and the club, are completely 1st class and 5 star all the way!!"
