More than 400 cyclists are expected to roll into town Sunday for the 22nd annual Ride for Life.
Riders from all over the country will saddle up for the two-day event to raise money for Muscular Dystrophy.
The parade of motorcycles will begin at 10 a.m. at Joplin's Cycle Connection on 32nd Street. They will cruise down Range Line to West 7th Street headed toward Galena, Kan. Their journey will end at approximately 11:15 at Buffalo Run Casino.
Last year, the motorcycle enthusiasts raised over $90,000 for MDA. This year, supporters are hoping to raise more.
The Seattle Cossacks, a stunt drill team, will be performing during activities planned at Buffalo Run Casino. The Cossacks will perform stunts on vintage Harley Davidsons, ranging from a 1930 VL to a 1949 CI.
Music, vender booths, concessions and rally events will be taking place throughout the day.
The Muscular Dystrophy Association has become one of the nation's largest voluntary health agencies, providing comprehensive medical services to thousands of people with neuromuscular diseases at more than 235 hospital-affiliated clinics across the nation.
