(Daugherty Township, PA)  Members of the “Run For McGuire” committee had another short motorcycle ride on August 25, 2016 as they donned the helmets and riding leather one more time to drive the donation check to the McGuire Memorial campus on route 65 in Daugherty Township.  Beaver County Radio is in it’s third year of sponsoring the annual charity motorcycle ride,  and this year proved to be a very worthwhile cause, netting a little over $4,300 dollars that was turned over to Sister Thaddeus after arriving  at McGuire Memorial.
