Lost Cause Motorcycle Group Raises Over $40,000 for the Iowa Chapter

The Lost Cause Motorcycle Group, led by Chad and Kristen Pierson of Hubbard, Iowa, raised over $40,000 for the Iowa Chapter of the American Parkinson Disease Association. On Saturday, August 24, 2013 the group held their annual Shake, Rattle and Roll fundraiser, a motorcycle ride from Roland, IA to Kamrar, IA to Story City, IA. Motorcycle enthusiasts and supporters hopped on their bikes to enjoy a beautiful afternoon of riding, which ended at Carousel Lanes in Story City. The event continued at Carousel Lanes with music, food and a silent auction. Chad Pierson was diagnosed with Parkinson’s in 2006. For the past few years, Chad and Kristen have dedicated this event toward raising funds for Parkinson’s research and awareness. The Iowa Chapter of the APDA is most grateful for the Lost Cause riders and their dedication to finding a cure for Parkinson’s and easing the burden of the disease. Thank you, thank you, thank you to the Lost Cause riders and Chad and Kristen Pierson!

Special musical guest, Mick Beaman, came from the Arizona Chapter of the APDA  to participate and entertain attendees. Thank you to Mick for your music and presence!
