Bikes and trikes descend on Decatur for annual benefit
Wednesday, May 16, 2018
Westside Eagle Observer/MIKE ECKELS How many Decatur firefighters does it take to load a dummy into a jeep? Apparently, three, although two more joined in a short time later. The dummy, Decatur Fire Department's emergency response human analog, made the round trip ride to raise funds for the Arkansas Children's Hospital May 5.
DECATUR -- Suddenly the air was filled with the roar of small engines as bikes and trikes from the four-state area and beyond descended on the sleepy town of Decatur May 5 on a mission of mercy. That mission was to raise money for a worthy charity and to remember a little boy who lost his battle with a terminal illness.
